A Miami County couple has been arrested on charges of Child Neglect for allegedly allowing their two young daughters to live in filthy conditions at their home near Bunker Hill.
Indiana State Police arrested 30-year old Richard Avery Junior and his 28-year old wife, Heather, after a month-long investigation. The couple’s 4 and 5-year old daughters were reportedly malnourished and living in filth, which investigators say has brought about medical and dental problems for the children.
The two girls have been placed into the custody of the Miami County Department of Child Services while their parents were taken to the Miami County Jail.
