A Riverside County couple who allegedly converted the ground floor of their Perris home into a makeshift strip club are also being accused of child abuse

Investigators questioned Gregory Lacy, 60, and LaQuron Lacy, 43, in July after 46-year-old Calvin Lynch was shot and killed in their front yard. While no arrests have yet been made in connection with the murder, when sheriff's deputies entered the home they found five Ecstasy pills on the kitchen counter and what appeared to be the makings of the strip club, according to the Associated Press.

Although the "love drug" was found in the home, the Lacy's were arrested on child abuse charges after they allegedly abused several of their seven young adopted children all under 11-years old.

The Press-Enterprise reports that at least four of the children claimed Mr. Lacy hit them with belts and a metal cane that caused injuries and scarring, and 6-year-old child the man had threatened them with a Taser.

Meanwhile, according to court records, a 7-year-old told authorities that Mr. Lacy had recently molested her in front of some of the children. 

Gregory Lacy is being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to appear in court next Friday. LaQuron Lacy was being held on $50,000 bail. They both also have outstanding DUI charges, according to the IE Weekly.
