They remain free on conditional bail that restricts them to remain at their home address in Scotland.

The couple has been charged with allegations of pushing children’s faces into urine, dragging by the hair and hitting with a metal ladle.

12 people – six men and six women – have come forward about the alleged abuse that took place in the period of 1970 and 1984.

A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for June 17.  No trial date has been set.
