A Port Charlotte mother has been arrested and faces charges after police found her three kids living in deplorable conditions inside their home.
Officials say the home on MacLellan Avenue was covered in trash, animal and human waste, and urine. The home was also infested with bugs, and the fridge had 5-year old expired meat in it…as well as a dead cat in a shoe box.
The woman, identified as 40-year-old Melissa Langstine-Troyano, had apparently not cleaned the house in more than two years. She is now charged with three counts of child neglect without great bodily harm.
