OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City mother has been arrested after police say her children were found among flies, fleas and filth.

Police say the 24-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday after someone called about the welfare of the 1- and 2-year-old children. They say the toddlers had soiled diapers and the older child was covered in flea bites and scabs.

Police say dirty diapers, unwashed dishes and rodent feces littered the house. The woman said she hadn’t been feeling well and was “14 weeks pregnant” when police asked why the house was dirty.

She is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a child neglect complaint. Her bond is set at $10,000.
