Citrus County, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Christina Forbes, 33, and Robert Forbes, 32, were jailed Thursday after a school nurse found a roach buried inside their 9-year-old son's ear.... among other places.
According to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched after a school nurse discovered a roach inside a 9-year-old student's ear back in September.
School administrators also told deputies that the child often came to school smelling like cat urine, had roaches crawling out of his backpack, wore the same pullup to school on multiple occasions and appeared to have medical needs that weren't being addressed.
When deputies visited the couple's roach motel, they found conditions that were described as deplorable and a safety risk.
The child was removed from the home and placed into protective custody.
Christina and Robert Forbes were booked into jail and charged with one count of child abuse. Bail has been set at $50,000 each.
