Texas Woman Left Behind Children Following Eviction: Police

Two-year-old boy, infant girl found by apartment complex manager following eviction

A Houston woman has been arrested on charges that she left her two young children behind in squalid conditions after being evicted from her apartment.

Houston police spokesman John Cannon says 22-year-old Kerri Green was arrested Tuesday and faces two counts of abandoning a child.

Authorities in court records say an apartment complex manager went into Green's apartment on April 23 after she'd been evicted to ensure the unit was empty and clean.

The manager instead found a 2-year-old boy and an infant girl alone in a crib amid trash and other debris.

The girl had vomit and mucus on her while the boy was malnourished, "staring into space" and unresponsive to an officer's voice and touch.

Green was no longer being held Wednesday. A phone listing for her could not be found.
