A Laurel County mother was arraigned Monday after police say they found her five children living in filth.
London Police responded to a 911 call Saturday after two of the kids were spotted on Main Street near their house. The mother, April Cathers, told police she was going to get the children after they jumped out of a window.
According to the citation, the officer found sewage coming from the pipes in the only bathroom. Animal feces were also discovered by the officer.
Cathers is charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She is due back in court December 29.
