OWASSO, Okla. -- Two people in Oklahoma have been arrested in what nurses described as "the worst case of child abuse they had seen."
On Saturday, the parents, 25-year-old Kevin Fowler and 24-year-old Aislyn Miller, were arrested on child abuse charges.
Police in Owasso, Okla., were called to a local urgent care Friday night to investigate reports of child abuse.
When authorities arrived, nurses were working on two victims, who were described as twin infants, the Tulsa World reports.
According to KJRH, officers said a nurse told them they saw a maggot crawl out of one of the victim's genitals.
The nurse also reported finding feces in one of the infant's ears and said the children looked like skeletons.
The infants were suffering from bed sores and severe diaper rash, the Tulsa World reports.
Miller reportedly told police she knew the twin infants were in bad condition, but said she and Fowler are "new parents" and she didn't have any experience taking care of babies, the Tulsa World reports.
Both were jailed and held on $100,000, according to the newspaper.AlertMe
