SHEPHERDSVILLE, KENTUCKY: A young Kentucky couple were arrested over the weekend for allegedly dehydrating their one-month-old baby and developing a bleeding diaper rash in their roach and bug-infested apartment.

The Bullitt County Sheriff’s office reportedly received a complaint that afternoon on Saturday, February 13, that 22-year-old Dylan Litwora and 19-year-old Amber Neidlow were poorly caring for their month-old child.

Police say the caller accused the parents of using drugs around the boy, that he was outside in the cold and that they gave him 2 percent cow’s milk instead of the correct formula. When police were investigating their home on Ceasars Court near Froman Lake in Shepherdsville, they said the child was outside on a swing.

“The baby appeared to be in distress, difficulty breathing and in pain,” said an arrest report. “The baby’s face was red and when he cried his voice was very low and sounded weak.” One official said: “I found bed bugs where the baby sleeps and everywhere it was. Clothes / blankets near the child were very dirty. The residence lacked cleanliness and safety. The floors were uneven and broken . “

Litwora reportedly said the baby had a rash and he was asked to change his diaper. When he removed the diaper, a “very bad rash” was bleeding and blisters, according to court records. At this point, the deputy turned to Child Protective Services and EMS (Emergency Medical Services).

When the house was searched, sheriffs found two mason jars containing, among other things, suspected marijuana, bongs, glass pipes, syringes and a plastic bag with suspected meth residues. Litwora informed the police that the marijuana was actually hemp, which he had obtained from a hemp farm.

According to court records, the house was “in a mess” with cockroaches and other insects. The house was in such poor condition that the power cables in the bedroom were a fire hazard and excessive clutter, officials said.

According to the arrest reports, rescue workers believed the child was suffering from dehydration, constipation, malnutrition and had a severe diaper rash. He was taken to the hospital to check out.

Both parents were charged with the criminal abuse of a second degree child, possession of marijuana, and purchase or possession of drug paraphernalia. You are being held at the Bullitt County Detention Center.
