BRADFORD, ENGLAND — Carwash owners Kristian Holub, and his wife Ruzena Holubova, and their son, Kristian Putnoki, 20, were in court on slave labor charges, and accused of forcing three Czech men to work at their Auto Care carwash, a Keighley News story reported.

The May 21 story said all three pleaded "not guilty" to three charges, two of which claimed that Tencik and Fratisek Shopek had to perform forced labor at the carwash. The third charge alleged that Ivan Fridrich had to clean the family's house.

A five-day trial is set to begin on July 1.
