Kids Found Strapped in Car with Roaches; Couple Arrested in Wyoming: Court Documents

A Wyoming couple is facing serious charges of child abuse as their children were discovered confined in booster seats with cockroaches crawling on them, according to court documents.

Last week, court documents were filed in Wyoming, naming Britney Morgan Melton and Aaron Eugene Nordstrom as defendants.

Melton faces charges of three counts of fourth-degree child abuse and one count of lying to a peace officer. According to the documents, she allegedly provided false information to the police, leading them to believe that her children were under the care of a friend.

According to the document, she allegedly used a harness and knotted string to confine at least three of her children in booster seats, which unfortunately exposed them to roaches and other insects.

Nordstrom is facing charges related to the children being restrained in booster seats near the presence of roaches. Furthermore, he is alleged to have left young children at home without supervision, including a 4-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a 1-year-old. According to the documents, all three individuals were discovered outside of their residence, with the 4-year-old child found wandering in the street at the time of the police’s arrival.

According to the criminal complaint, there is another business located near the couple’s residence that is mentioned as a site where one or more of the alleged crimes took place.

Residents of the mobile home community where the couple resides have reported frequent conflicts between the two individuals. According to a witness, Melton allegedly used force to bring her oldest daughter inside when she refused to return home as reported by Wood TV.

Wyoming police have chosen not to provide any comments at this time. They have stated that the investigation is still ongoing and there is a possibility of further charges being filed.

Both individuals are anticipated to return to court next week for a pretrial hearing.
