2 arrested after infant left alone in 'deplorable' residence

COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) — Two people have been arrested after an infant was found to be left alone in a home that included the “overwhelming odor of animal urine and feces.”

The Columbus Police Department said 28-year-old Sarah Coe and 38-year-old Bradley Longworth were arrested in the case.

Police said they responded to a residence in the 1700 block of Elm Street for a residence check and found that an 11-month-old child had been left alone.

Officers that responded described the living conditions inside the residence as “deplorable.”

Coe, the mother of the child, later confirmed to police that the child was inside the residence.

The pair face preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent.


Florida Legislature passes abortion parental consent bill

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Girls under the age of 18 will have to get a parent’s permission before getting an abortion under a bill the Florida Legislature is sending to Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The House passed the bill Thursday 75-43 largely along party lines.

DeSantis asked lawmakers to send him the bill during his State of the State address that kicked off the legislative session last month and he’s expected to sign it.

The bill has a provision that will allow a girl to ask a judge for a waiver from the law in cases of abuse, incest or when involving a parent could cause more harm than allowing the procedure.
