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.
