An Oklahoma mother faces charges after authorities said she starved her two young children and made them eat dog feces.
Mary Elizabeth Moore, 34, remains in custody on a $100,000 bond. She has been charged with two counts of felony child neglect after her children, ages 3 and 5, were rushed to the hospital and weighing just 18 and 26 pounds.
According to court documents, the children were so malnourished that hospital staff placed them on a “special diet” and applied “nasal feeding tubes.”
“This is definitely an extreme case of child neglect, one of the worst that I’ve seen,” said Delaware County Undersheriff Tracy Shaw.
