2 children found living in squalor in Millstone
Two children who were found living in squalor in Millstone are now in foster care.
State police say they received a tip last week about two young children and their parents were living in the house in deplorable conditions. When officers checked, they found the family in a small house on Route 33 that had maggot-infested meat in the sink, a dead rodent in the children's bedroom and two feet of water in the basement.
Authorities removed a 9-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy from the home and placed them in foster care.
Their parents, 29-year-old Angelica Coecho and her husband, 30-year-old Jeremy Morrelli, were arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. They've been released, but can't move back into the house until local officials say it's fit for human habitation.
