Police in Kenton County said an arrest was made after two children and an elderly alzheimer's patient were found in a home in 'deplorable conditions.'

Officers said there were also more than a dozen dogs and cats inside the Latonia Lakes home.

According to investigators, police went to the house Wednesday looking for a wanted man.

Instead, they reportedly found the children and the 89-year-old woman.

The children were removed from the home.

And officers said their mother, Christina Kurtz, was arrested for criminal abuse.
