Sheriff’s deputy: Couple’s living conditions ‘worst case I’ve seen’

A Barbourville couple was arrested Tuesday for endangering the welfare of a minor, according to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard.

Kristina Jones, 24, and Nicholas Jones, 25, were arrested after deputies Brian Hensley and Chad Wagner responded to a complaint of a fight in progress. Deputies discovered deplorable living conditions at the couple’s residence, Pickard said.

According to Pickard, Hensley called it “the worst case I’ve seen in my law enforcement career” when deputies found garbage piled up in every room and rotted food covering the floors. The children were lying in beds covered in stains and garbage. Deputies called social services, Pickard said.

Kristina and Nicholas were charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. Both Kristina and Nicholas were charged with unspecified bench warrants. They are being held in the Knox County Detention Center on a $2,500 cash bond.

Single-vehicle wreck

A single-vehicle wreck occurred Thursday on KY 192, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputies Kevin Berry and John Inman were dispatched to investigate complaints of a speeding, reckless driver in a red Kia heading west on KY 192. Deputies located the vehicle off the road in a small ditch.

The driver, Sheila Clark, 54, of London, allegedly crashed due to a drop in blood sugar. She was transported by Ambulance, Inc. of Laurel County to Saint Joseph London for treatment.

Assisting at the scene were London Laurel Rescue Squad and the Laurel County Fire Department.

Man arrested for domestic violence

A Corbin man was arrested Thursday on domestic violence charges, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputies Milton Storm and John Inman received a domestic violence complaint at a residence on KY 1223. When they arrived, an investigation revealed Christopher Millard, 25, reportedly assaulted a victim. The victim had red marks on her neck, Root said, and deputies noted broken articles on the floor of the residence.

Millard was charged with fourth-degree assault–domestic violence and was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
