MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities took custody of two children in Mandan after their parents were arrested for the second time in two months for allegedly keeping their children in filthy and dangerous conditions.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1IIdc4F ) that Justin and Amanda Thomas were charged in Morton County with felony child neglect. Amanda Thomas also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both suspects previously were charged with child neglect in April, but were out of custody on bond while they await trial in that case.

Mandan Police Lt. Lori Flaten wrote in a statement that the condition of the residence was “extremely bad,” with piles of trash and old food, as well as knives and broken glass throughout the home.

Court documents do not list attorneys for the couple.
