Deputies found that there were feces all over the residence, on beds, walls and floors. Deputies further found that sinks were clogged up and there was no way of bathing the children inside the residence. Due to the conditions that presented a health hazard for the children, and the mother leaving chemicals accessible to the children, she was arrested for child endangerment a state jail felony.
