Emerado, ND (WDAY TV) - An Emerado couple is facing felony charges of child neglect.

48-year-old Richard Elskoe and 39-year-old Kimberly Elskoe pleaded not guilty this week in court.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the couple’s house in Emerado on October 3rd for a Welfare check, by request of social services.

Deputies say the home had piles of animal feces and urine in plain view, with garbage and debris scattered about.

There were four children in the house, including a 15-year-old boy with developmental delays who was lying in a bed, wearing a urine-soaked diaper.

B.J. Maxson/Sheriff’s Department: “Due to the condition of the residence, um, it was decided that the four children would be removed, placed with social services and the parents were both charged with child neglect.”

Pre-trial conferences have been set for January 9th.
