CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- A 10-year-old girl who authorities say had been 
chained to a bed by her ankles was killed in a house fire, and her parents were 
arrested on manslaughter charges. 

Sheriff Wesley Kendrick said investigators believe the blaze early Monday was 
accidental. Four people made it out of the house - the parents and their two 
other children - before it burned to the ground. 

The body of Molly Holt was found by firefighters in her bedroom under debris 
where the roof had collapsed, said Chief Deputy Jerry Dorney. Investigators 
also found a chain and padlock that they determined had secured the girl to her 
bed, Dorney said. 

Dorney would not say what the parents told investigators when asked why their 
daughter was chained to the bed. 

Lloyd Holt, 32, and Teresa Dick, 31, were arrested and jailed on $100,000 bail 

Dorney said that when authorities arrived at the home, the father said he was 
not able to get the girl out.
