NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) — Parents of four children face child neglect charges after the children were found alone and lying in a filthy home for more than 24 hours, according to court records judgment.
The children’s father, Timothy Goldman, called police to say that Brianna Franklin, the children’s mother, had not returned home to Claiborne Street to care for the children.
Metro police found the house overrun with cockroaches and garbage and sick and littered toddlers. It seems the children are not being fed or bathed. Goldman said he did not feed the children for more than 24 hours, according to court documents. He said he no longer wanted to take care of the children.
Franklin left the children in Goldman’s care on Friday. Franklin told police when she returned home that she had worked for 27 hours.
Police charged both Goldman and Franklin with four aggravating counts of child endangerment. Their court date is set for Tuesday afternoon. The children were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
