MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (KBSI) – Criminal charges are pending against a couple in McCracken County after law enforcement say they found their two adult sons living in “deplorable conditions.”

One son is a quadriplegic and was found to be home alone with multiple dogs jumping on him. He was found to be severely dehydrated, malnourished, and wearing soiled clothing, according to the sheriff’s office. The other son was found to be blind and autistic.

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office responded to an address on Krebs Station Road regarding a welfare check on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

The home was found to be in deplorable conditions and lacked necessary items for basic survival and cleanliness, according to the sheriff’s office.

The home also contained nearly 20 animals inside.

The two adult children were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Criminal charges are pending.

McCracken County Animal Control & Department for Community Based Services assisted the sheriff’s office at the scene.
