A Philadelphia couple have pled guilty to endangering their three young children after police found the kids inside a home covered in feces and unknown fluids.
Soyika Eldemire, 25, and Lakeeshanaye Overton, 24, each pled guilty to one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Recklessly Endangering Another Person at a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
The couple was arrested on August 9 after police responded to a domestic violence accusation against them.
Upon entering the parent's Logan home on the 4800 block of N. 9th Street, police said the floors, furniture and a child's playpen were covered with a mixture of feces, unknown fluids and trash.
“It looked a little unkempt, the smell was a little bit tough to take,” said Philadelphia Police Captain John Fleming said when the investigation began.
The children, ages 1, 3, and 4, were removed from the home, checked out at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and then placed in foster care.
The parents are scheduled to be sentenced in late October.
