(AP) - Authorities in the Texas Panhandle say a husband and wife have been arrested in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 5-year-old child.
    
The Hutchinson County Sheriff's Office says Paul Thomas Corbin was booked on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and injury to a child. Terra Lashea Corbin was arrested Friday on a charge of injury to a child by omission.
    
Paul Corbin is being held on $500,000 bond. Terra Corbin's bond has been set at $50,000. Jail records Saturday did not indicate an attorney for either defendant.
    
Investigators allege Paul Corbin sexually assaulted and caused further injuries to the child, who was admitted to a Panhandle hospital. Further details weren't immediately released on the youngster.
