Couple Faces Neglect Charges

Last updated on Sunday, January 13, 2008

(ELWOOD) - An Elwood couple is charged with neglect after police say they lived in a trash-filled home with two children.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Christy Pelech and 36-year-old Brian Berres didn't have heat and electricity. Officers were called to the home last November, after someone called saying the living conditions for their 11-month and two year old sons - were unsafe.

Pelech and Berres face neglect charges. They also face up to three years behind bars.
