Officials charged two people with child neglect after a baby was found covered in filth and feces in Hawkins County.

Hawkins County deputies arrested Whitney Danielle Taylor and Seth Allen Cornelius over the weekend at a home on Burem Road in Rogersville, reported WCYB.

Deputies said when they arrived at the house, they found a baby wearing a diaper "full of fecal matter, hanging approximately six to eight inches." Officials also noted that "dry crusty fecal matter" was on the child's back and legs.

Authorities said they also found animal feces throughout the house, along with alcoholic beverages and drug paraphernalia.
