CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A West Virginia woman and the husband accused of chaining and torturing her for years are behind bars on charges they violated a custody order for their 2-year-old son.

Forty-three-year-old Stephanie Lizon and 39-year-old Peter Lizon were at South Central Regional Jail on Wednesday. Her bond is $50,000. His is $5,000.

Media outlets say the couple was arrested after authorities found their son at their Jackson County farm.

Stephanie Lizon had moved to Alexandria, Va., with her parents after her husband's arrest on a malicious wounding charge last summer. Her parents won custody of her son in December. Authorities say she recently took the boy from them.

Stephanie Lizon was charged with child concealment; her husband was charged with obstruction. He's accused of lying about his wife and son's whereabouts.
