Kingsport police: Infant found in filth after mother passes out on 2-year-old

Amber K. Jones


KINGSPORT — A Kingsport woman has been arrested after she was allegedly found passed out on top of her daughter, age 2, while her infant son was left in a filthy crib with scurrying roaches.  


Amber K. Jones, 25, of 1000 Stonegate Road, apartment F8, is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse or neglect. According to an affidavit filed in Kingsport court, at approximately 9 a.m. Thursday police were requested to conduct a welfare check at her apartment. 


An officer reportedly beat on the door several minutes but received no response. Central dispatch then called Jones' residence, with the officer outside hearing a phone ring nearly 20 times. Contact was still not established.
