PROVIDENCE, Ky. (WFIE) - The Providence woman arrested after police say they found a small child living in filth has been indicted by a grand jury.
Felicia Terrell, 27, is charged with criminal abuse of a child under 12.
She’s now due back in court July 1 at 9 a.m.

While searching, police say they found drugs and guns.
They say they also discovered what appeared to be a barn-type, horse stable, door leading to a small bedroom. The child’s bedroom window was mostly boarded up.
Inside the room, police say they saw what appeared to be small hand prints in feces on the walls.
They say the floor was covered with feces, urine, and scattered cereal.
