LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. -- A Larimer County couple is charged with abusing three adopted Russian sisters, forcing them to do hundreds of push-ups, run 43 miles in three days, and do headstands for over an hour, according to court documents.

Since Jan. 1, 2006, the parents' punishment for bad behavior included making one girl do push-ups with a nail-embedded board under her thighs and forcing the sisters to hit each other in the face and smack their heads together, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by

Edelwina Leschinsky, 44, and Steven Leschinsky, 44, are charged with felony child abuse causing serious bodily injury, two misdemeanor abuse charges involving injury and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to court records.

The girls -- now ages 12, 13 and 14 -- were removed from the home into the care of a guardian, court records said.

Allegations of abuse surfaced Jan. 21 when one of the girls came to school with a black eye and a child protective worker alerted the Larimer County Sheriff's Office, the affidavit said. The girl, then age 12, told a deputy that her mother threw a snow boot at her for discipline during the Christmas holiday.
