Mother Arrested After Police Find Child In Horrendous Conditions

Last updated on Friday, May 31, 2013

(CUMBERLAND) - Police arrested a mother after finding her 15-year-old daughter with autism living in what officers called “horrendous conditions”.

According to Cumberland Police, the mother called police Wednesday to report her daughter was violently acting out.

WTHR reports that when they got there police put the mom in handcuffs because of what they saw in that home.

It all happened at a home on East Saint Joseph Drive in Cumberland.

The girl is in the custody of Child Protective Services and was taken to Riley Hospital for evaluation.

From the outside, it looked like any suburban home. Inside though, police say they found trash, human feces, and filth, conditions they called "unacceptable".

They arrested the girl's mother, Theresa Carter and charged her with felony neglect of a dependent.

Police say Carter works as a registered nurse.
