LOGAN, W.Va. — A Logan County mother is facing numerous charges after her four children were allegedly found home alone in unlivable conditions.
Logan County Deputies charged Kellie Odella Workman, 36, of Mount Gay, with four counts of child abuse creating risk of injury and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
According to a criminal complaint filed in Logan County Magistrate Court, deputies responded to a call about several unattended children at a home on Thunder Road at Godby Heights around 10 p.m. Saturday. When they arrived, they found four children, ages one to 13, home alone.
Deputies said the home had no electricity and no food inside. There was also trash throughout the home. In addition, deputies said the kids had no beds to sleep on.
Workman was arrested by deputies around midnight when she came home. Deputies said they found drugs in her pockets and she refused to tell them where she had been.
The children are currently with Child Protective Services.
