OKLAHOMA CITY -- (KFOR) -- An Oklahoma City mother was arrested on child neglect and drug charges after her children were found living in deplorable conditions.
An officer spoke with a woman and her husband on Sept. 14 who said they watch 32-year-old Amanda Moore’s children, an 11-month-old girl and an 8-year-old boy, on the weekends. The woman told police the 11-month-old had a “terrible diaper rash,” and “has had suspicions of child neglect for some time.”
According to a police report, the 11-month-old girl’s diaper area, including her genitals, were “red, cracked and swollen.” She also had multiple bug bites “all over her body” and a small bruise on her knee. The woman said when she picked the children up from Moore’s apartment, the baby’s diaper was soaked in urine.
Police searched Moore's apartment and found it cluttered and infested with roaches. An officer found .10 grams of methamphetamine in the children’s playroom, as well as 1mg of Clonazepam in the room where the children slept. Moore was arrested on child neglect and drug charges.
