Deplorable: Lorain County Kids Pulled From Wretched Living Conditions

Lorain, OH - Lorain County parents behind bars on child endangering charges.

Tammie and Wilbur Kerns, Jr. busted after police went to the family's Lexington Avenue home and found the couple's two children unkempt and living in deplorable conditions.

They also found nearly a dozen dogs living among animal feces and rotting food.

An anonymous complaint tipped police off to the wretched state of the house.

A strong odor of animal feces and urine permeated the home. Filthy floors, rotting food and dirty dishes littered the bedroom, kitchen and living room.

The couple's 10-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son are now in the care of relatives.
