A local woman was cited into court Friday morning for allegedly forcing her father to live in filth.
Forty-year old Anissa McCombs of Hopkinsville is charged with reckless abuse of an adult. The arrest citation says McCombs was the caretaker for her father at a Mechanic Street residence.
The man's room was reportedly in poor condition, with roaches crawling all over the bed and everything in the room. Police say the victim's shower was filled with clothes and the other bathtub in the home had water standing in it.
The refrigerator was reportedly filled with rotten food and the cabinets were infested with roaches. Police say clothes, beer cans and roaches covered the floors.
The father reportedly had open sores on his legs.
McCombs allegedly admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana. She will appear in District Court later this month.
