LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Boyle County Sheriff's Office says two people have been arrested after three children were found living in a shed with no running water, no electricity and a bucket containing human feces.
According to a news release, representatives of the sheriff's department, as well as social services, were dispatched to a home on Lebanon Road, just southwest of Danville, Kentucky, after they received a report that children were being abused or neglected.
Authorities say 44-year-old Gregory Wilkerson and 25-year-old Brandi Harmon -- along with three children --- were all living in a shed behind the home.
The sheriff's department says all three children received medical treatment. According to the news release, they were suffering from "extreme rashes and bed bug bites."
Wilkerson and Harmon were taken to the Boyle County Detention Center and are charged with three counts of first degree criminal abuse of a child under the age of 12.
All three children were taken into protective custody, according to the news release.
