Four children were found to be living in a Sevierville home filled with feces and urine, according to a Sevierville Police Department report.

A fight between adult siblings led officers to the home on Dec. 28, 2019. Investigators said that's when they discovered Caitlyn Astrofsky, 23, and her brother Corey Astrofsky, 30, had been arguing over a child who soiled them self. The report indicated Corey wanted the child to 'wear a plastic bag' instead of pants.

Officers said Caitlyn claimed she lived at the home with Corey and their 68-year-old grandmother Diane Roberts.

Officers escorted Corey from the property and said they noticed an 'odor of feces' coming from the siblings and a foul smell of urine and feces within the home.

Police entered the home where they said they found unsanitary living conditions such as dirt and grime accumulating against appliances, feces and urine throughout the hallway and a non-functional bathroom with mold and feces.

Police determined the conditions to be unsafe.

According to a report, the four children were in the home and placed with the Department of Children's Services before being released to other family members.

The adult siblings and their grandmother were placed under arrest.

All three adults are charged with four counts of child neglect.
