According to reports, three adults, six dogs, three cats, and three children ages 2, 4, and 18 months live together in a doublewide trailer in Stillwater.
The Stillwater Police Detective Sergeant stated, “We could not complete the walk-through without taking breaks outside for fresh air. I noticed there actually was carpet in the living room. It was saturated with so much urine and feces and walked all over that it was smashed down to a hard surface. My boots stuck to the flooring.” There was also feces smeared all over the walls and holes in the drywall.
It was reported that the 2 and 4-year-old children could not properly communicate and could only point and grunt. It was also noted that they are not potty trained. All the youngsters were allegedly malnourished.
The father reportedly told the police that he knew the home was a mess and needed to be cleaned, and he confirmed that the markings on the walls were made with excrement. He allegedly said the children regularly play with feces. The man also allegedly admitted to sexually abusing his 4-year-old daughter.
When the man was initially taken into custody in March, he was charged with one count of child sexual abuse. He was charged with two counts of child neglect in June. He was booked into the Payne County Jail in lieu of a $150,000 bond.
His wife was placed under arrest on three counts of child neglect, and his mother is facing the same charges. They are each being held in the county jail on $30,000 bonds.
The Oklahoma Department of Human Services took custody of the children, and the dogs were removed and placed with animal welfare.
