Woman accused of child neglect and intentional child abuse
Police: Human feces found in children's bedroom, around toddler's face, mouth
MADISON, Wis. — A Madison woman is accused of child neglect and intentional child abuse, according to court documents.
Janet L. Zabry, 33, was charged Friday in Dane County with three counts of child neglect and one charge of intentional child abuse.
A criminal complaint said Madison Police Department Officer Amanda Analla and other officers went to a trailer home on Dutch Mill Road in Madison on March 21 to check on the living conditions of three children — a 2-year-old girl, 2-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl — at the residence.
Analla reported that the conditions in the trailer were deplorable.
“I could smell a strong odor of urine and feces in the residence. It was very overwhelming,” Analla said, according to the criminal complaint.
“I did observe a naked [2-year-old] child sitting in a chair that appeared to be covered in dirt,” Analla continued.
The report described the trailer as covered in human feces, extremely dirty and appeared to have not been cleaned for weeks. The 2-year-old boy was found with feces “smeared on his face [and] around his mouth.”
Dane County Human Services located a responsible party to care for the children.
Zabry faces up to nine years in prison.
