OWASSO, Okla. – Two people in Oklahoma were arrested on child abuse charges after what nurses described as “the worst case of child abuse they had seen.”
Friday evening, police in Owasso, Okla. were called to a local urgent care to investigate reports of child abuse.
When authorities arrived, nurses were working on two victims, who were described as twin infants, the Tulsa World reports.
According to KJRH, officers said a nurse told them they saw a maggot crawl out of one of the victim’s genitals.
The nurse also told officers there were feces in one of the infant’s ears and the children looked like skeletons.
The infants were both suffering from bed sores and severe diaper rash, the Tulsa World reports.
On Saturday, the children’s parents, 25-year-old Kevin Fowler and 24-year-old Aislyn Miller, were arrested on child abuse charges.
Miller reportedly told police she knew the twin infants were in bad condition, but said that she and Fowler are “new parents” and she didn’t have any experience taking care of babies, the Tulsa world reports.
