A couple accused of keeping two infants in a mobile home under deplorable conditions have been arrested and now face charges of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
According to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office, State Police troopers arrested Jodie Lee Wisen, 23, of Belle, and her boyfriend William Clayton Booth, 31, of Cabin Creek, on unrelated charges.
Kanawha County sheriff's deputies removed two infants from the couple's home Thursday evening after Department of Health and Human Resources officials received reports of possible child neglect.
Sheriff's Capt. Sean Crosier said the DHHR received reports that the infants didn't have proper food, care or clothing. Deputies who went to the home Thursday night in Belle were met at the door by the infants' grandmother.
Crosier said deputies found coffee filters allegedly containing methamphetamine. Warrants were issued for the arrest of Wisen and Booth.
Those warrants, obtained by Deputy R. D. Evans for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, were served at Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
A preliminary hearing on the felony charges has been set for 1:30 p.m. Jan. 30 in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
