Easley Parents Left Children in Home with No Power, No Food, 19 Dogs

I’ll assume drugs were involved:

EASLEY — A man and woman from Easley have been arrested and charged with child neglect after police officers found five children living in a darkened home together with 19 dogs, no food and no working lights.

Arrest warrants for Angela Michelle Wardlaw and Robert Allen Henderson Jr., both of 518 Hunts Bridge Road in Easley, charge each with five counts of child neglect.

According to the Pickens County summary court warrants, officers went to the home on July 17 to serve an arrest warrant on an unrelated charge.

The officers said they found five children between the ages of 4 and 14, unattended, in the home together with 19 dogs.

They said four of the dogs were “unresponsive.”

The home, whose lights were not working, was littered with dog feces, the toilets were filled with human excrement and the children were “unbathed” and had no food, according to the warrants.

Wardlaw, 32, is the biological mother of all five children and Henderson, 30, is the biological father of three of the children, according to the warrants.

Disgusting. Child neglect should be a felony punishable by death.

    No. But it’s safe to assume pit bulls and rottweilers were in there somewhere.

    They said four of the dogs were “unresponsive.” um, is that fancy talk for “dead” it’s not their fault, the dogs said they would babysit the kids… it was that damn Cat in the Hat again I bet!!! I will not leave my kids alone, I will not leave them in the home, not with 19 dogs all in my bed, oh wait, make that 15, I think 4 are dead.
