A young child was located in the residence on a dirty, bare mattress with no sheets, while his mother allegedly admitted to breastfeeding her infant while high.

According to affidavits filed in Kingsport court, police were asked to check on a 3-month-old and 8-year-old at Model City Apartments, 1000 Stonegate Road.
