MEDWAY, Ohio (WDTN) - A Medway mother and her boyfriend were taken to jail, afterdeputies found their children living in filthy conditions.
Deputies say it all came to light when they responded to adomestic violence call at 13 Dogwood Road.
The grandparents of the two babies were in a fight with theirmother, Samantha Lowry, because she wouldn't clean up.
A mailman driving by the home told 2 News he dropped off GoodHousekeeping magazine at the home once a month, but deputies saidwhat they found inside, was far from good.
"It was very unclean, unsanitary. The stench was obnoxious. Youcould see mold on the walls. It smelled like a lot of urine, dirt,and filth," said Sgt. Dee Shaw, with the Clark County Sheriff'soffice.
Court documents stated there was mold growing on the walls,trash and clothes piled up to the ceilings, and just pathways inthe home, to walk from room to room.
Deputies said when they opened the refrigerator, severalcockroaches came crawling out. There was also uncovered food in therefrigerator, along with the roaches.
Court documents stated Children Services already has an opencase against the parents. This time, they removed a 15 month oldgirl and 5 month old baby boy from the home.
Rowly pleaded not guilty to child endangering charges in court.Her boyfriend Timothy Humphreys was also arraigned, but he wasreleased on his own recognizance.
2 News asked Timothy Humphreys why his children were living insuch dirty conditions.
"I'm not talking right now," said Humphreys.
We asked Humphreys how his home had gotten so dirty. He said, "Iwork 40 hours a week and am trying to take care of two kids. Youtry doing that, have a good day."
The judge has ordered Rowly and Humphreys not to have anycontact with their two children, who are now in state custody.
"I wouldn't let my dogs live like that," said Sgt. Shaw.
Samantha Lowry's bond was set at $1,000.
"They came in the front window, went through gifts, unwrapped all the gifts they could find to see what they could take, snatched the TV off the wall, snatched the computer."
The tentative plan calls for the fairgrounds to be build on the northeast corner of the Arlington Road and Interstate 70 intersection.
Police said they were last seen about 12 hours ago, but officers are concerned because both have Alzheimer's.
"The suspects kicked the children out of the car, left them in the cold and took off," said Sgt. Mark Ponichtera.
Only on 2, after nearly six months since the air show disaster Dayton Airport firefighters are ready to tell the public they did everything "humanly possible" in response to the crash.
