NE Tennessee mother faces child neglect charges

MOUNT CARMEL — Two children ages 3 and 6 were removed from a Mount Carmel home last week after police allegedly found unhealthy living conditions — including bugs, maggots, rotting food, trash and dirty diapers — throughout the residence.

The children’s mother, Laura Michelle Frazier, 31, 44 Cypress Street, Mount Carmel, was arraigned Monday in Hawkins County Sessions Court on two counts of child neglect.

Mount Carmel Police Department Officer Bobby Moffitt was dispatched to Frazier’s house last Wednesday afternoon on a request for a child welfare check.
