Police in Dover, New Hampshire, have arrested a mother and father accused of failing to properly supervise their two young children and allowing them to live in filth.
Michael Page, 32, and Sarah Hutchins, 32, are both charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Police responded to their apartment on Addison Place on July 20 after a state Division of Children, Youth, and Families report that a 2-year-old child was wandering the apartment complex with no supervision. It was learned Page was responsible for watching the children that day.
Police also found that the apartment was in disrepair and a state of filth, so the children - ages 2 and 4 - were taken into protective custody.
Arrest warrants were obtained for Page and Hutchins.
Page was arrested on July 28 at the Strafford House of Corrections, where he was being held on other charges.
Hutchins turned herself in on Aug. 3.
Both were released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail and are scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 14.
It was not immediately clear if they have attorneys.
