Richmond police have cited the parents of a child they say was found in deplorable conditions.
Officers cited John McPhearson, 30, and Virginia Combs, 25, to court. Both have been accused of endangering the welfare of a minor.
On Thursday, police say arrived at an apartment on Ballard Drive, and found the couple's seven-month-old child inside in what they called conditions that were hazardous and deplorable. The child was unsupervised.
Police say the child had a rash on the back and neck. Officers contacted a social services representative, who took custody of the child.
