y grew to know as normal life.'
Dove was charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance, two counts of criminal conspiracy, operating a gambling establishment and two counts of child neglect. He remained in jail Thursday without bail. If convicted, he faces up to 40 years in prison.
But Dove's mother said that her son held no one hostage and that his wife was the root of the couple's drug addiction.
'She's driven my son crazy,' Helaine Young said in an interview at her home.
She claimed her son was once a wealthy owner of several convenience stores, paying for anything his wife requested, including baby sitters and house cleaners. Her son installed the cameras for the family's security when he renovated the home in a rural town near the North Carolina line, she said. The pair met about 13 years ago, Young said.
Dove's oldest child, 20-year-old Brittney Dove, said she and a friend used to take care of the boys when she stayed in the home. But she last saw them about three years ago, she said.
'She would not get out of the bed,' Brittney said of the boys' mother. 'It disgusts me that he's in jail. I'm not condoning what he did. There's no excuse for the child neglect. But she should be there, too. He honestly loved her. He was nothing but good to her.'
Detective Thompson said the boys were socially inept.
'The oldest one can communicate, but it's on a 3- to 4-year-old, broken-English level,' he said. 'The 4-year-old jibber-jabbers. It's rambling stuff.'
Young said the two knew how to curse because that's what they heard at home.
'The cuss words were the plainest words you can hear from them,' she said, recalling phone conversations with the boys.
The boys are living safely with a relative, Thompson revealed.
'Maybe now, we've given these kids the chance of a normal life,' he added.
