Parents charged with neglect after child found wandering

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Deputies had thought one complaint of child neglect was bad enough, but when they went to check on it, they found something even worse.

Angela Walsh and Evan Ferguson are charged with child neglect with great bodily harm.

We're still gathering more details, but deputies say they were first called out to pick up a 4-year-old wandering around a neighborhood at night. The girl was dressed only in a pair of underwear.

When they took her home, deputies said there was a 1 and a half year old sleeping next to a crib – naked and covered in its own filth.

Ferguson was home at the time, deputies said. Both Walsh and Ferguson were taken into custody.
