Roswell, NM (KTSM) — Two Roswell, New Mexico parents accused of caging their daughter inside a feces infested room have been arrested. 32 year-old Charity Calvert and 64 year-old Edward Romero have been charged with child abuse. Authorities found the five year old while responding to a domestic disturbance call. They say she was naked, covered in feces, and had bruises all over her body. There were cockroaches in her blanket and rodent droppings in the room. Officers also say the mother and father were so drunk they didn't know their own names. She's now in state custody.
