This is the moment Las Vegas Metro Police discovered the ‘worst ever’ case of child abuse, with six children horribly abused, including two in cages.

Officers responding to a domestic violence call on June 11 found two 11-year-old children and four other people severely beaten in a dog cage at an apartment near Flamingo Road and Valley View Boulevard.

One of the children ‘had two black eyes that were swollen shut, multiple marks and bruises all over her body and was bruised,’ police said.

The child was in such condition that his father thought he had beaten him to death.

Travis Doss, 31, and Amanda Stamper, 33, share a one-bedroom, one-bathroom extended-stay apartment with seven children under the age of 11.

Las Vegas police found six severely abused children, including two locked in dog cages, in a one-bedroom apartment last month.

Amanda Stamper, 33, (left) and Travis Doss, 31, (right) have been charged with child abuse and have both pleaded not guilty.

The children were all born to Doss, one of whom, a two-year-old, is the biological mother of his wife, Stampa.

The disturbing footage, first obtained by 8NewsNow, shows officers attempting to enter the bolted apartment before discovering the horrific conditions inside.

Once officers entered with their flashlights, they found the children locked in cages while a pit bull roamed free.

Officers led the children out of the apartment into the daylight where they began to detail their abuse, including being beaten with their father’s belt, rope and even a frying pan.

The battered child in the crib said he was not given enough food despite being ‘a big boy now’ and had to ‘share a large fry form McDonald’s with his siblings’ or eat ‘food in the garbage’.

‘He hit me in the face with the cage because I was trying to get out of the cage because I didn’t do anything and I was scared,’ the child tells officers in the video.

The gruesome discovery came after Stamper called police to a Walgreens store across the street from her apartment hiding from her husband, 8NewsNow reported.

Stamper told officers that Doss showed him a picture of the baby from the crib and said he kicked the baby so hard in the head that he thought he was dead.

Travis Doss alleges he beat a child so badly he thought she was dead inside the cage.

Amanda Stamper alleged that she was sexually trafficked and violently abused by Doss

Stamper told police she believed the child had been ‘looking dead for the past five days.’

He then told officers what he would find in the couple’s apartment.

Stamper told 8 News Now that she was a victim of severe domestic abuse and wasn’t able to seek help because she was afraid Doss would retaliate if she did.

‘Not only them, but I too have been abused. He’s going to use my kids and my family if I ever call the police like he’s going to find my family and my kids, he’s a really violent person,’ she later told the outlet.

‘I know they were terrified,’ said Stamper, who is now pregnant.

She said she finally managed to call the police because she wanted them to be safe, adding ‘I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner’.

The pair were indicted by a Clark County grand jury in early July, charging Doss with 40 charges, including multiple counts of child abuse and sex trafficking of his wife.

Stamper faces seven counts of child abuse, one for each child, including the daughter she shares with Doss.

Stamper’s public defender said he didn’t hit the children himself, adding, ‘If he did, he would have suffered serious, serious abuse.’

Prosecutors said they were aware that Stamper worked as a sex worker at Doss’s behest but was aware of the alleged abuse.

Both Doss and Stamper appeared in court Tuesday and have pleaded not guilty.
