West Virginia state police say a baby was soaked in urine in the back seat of a parked vehicle where four adults allegedly were using heroin.

The Herald-Dispatch says the adults were arrested Friday along U.S. 60 in Huntington, about 52 miles west of Charleston.

Trooper J.A. Roach says troopers saw a 1-year-old boy in the back seat. Roach says the baby's urine formed a puddle in his car seat.

According to a criminal complaint, charges of child neglect creating risk of injury were filed against 56-year-old William Ernest Smith Sr., 54-year-old Gregory Allen Smith, 46-year-old Peggy Veronica Smith and 27-year-old Heather Lynn Bledsoe, all of Branchland.

William Smith also was charged with possession of a controlled substance, and Peggy Smith was charged with an outstanding warrant.


This story has been corrected to reflect that Huntington is 52 miles west of Charleston, not east.
