HODGENVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Two parents from Larue County are facing charges after police found their five children living in deplorable conditions.
Officers were called to a home at 129 Wood Lane in Hodgenville on Monday for a welfare check. When they arrived, they found conditions unfit for anyone to live in, according to arrest reports.
Documents state the house was full of roaches, some of which were crawling in the beds. The toilets were described as nasty and unfit to use. There were clothes two feet deep and dog feces on the floor, as well as sour water in the sinks.
The officers said the little amount of food in the house was infested with roaches.
Christy Jordan, 40, and Christopher Adkins, 39, were arrested and charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
An eviction notice from Wood Realty shows Christy Jordan owes more than $3,000 in rent for the property. She was given seven days to vacate the home.
