Bond is set for a Huntsville charged with three counts of torture/willful abuse of a child. Jose Cassiano Vargas, 23, and Norma Garcia, 23, are both being held on $90,000 bond.

Officers first went to the home to investigate a call about a hit and run accident. Vargas and Garcia were taken to Huntsville Hospital for treatment for injuries from the accident before going to jail.
