ASHLAND - A McDowell County couple was arrested after Child Protective Services found two kids eating human waste.
Michael Perry, 28, and Crystal Perry, 19, both of Ashland, were charged with child abuse creating substantial risk of injury after deputies found two kids under the age of three living in filth and actually handling and eating human excrement. McDowell County Sheriff Martin West said that deputies were called to assist C.P.S. with removing the children Thursday morning because the worker was met with resistance by the Perrys.
Both are held in jail on $100,000 bond.
