Tasha Noel Herndon, 26, is facing serious charges after police say her boys were living in squalor.

"It's a horror story," said Herndon's neighbor, who only wants to identified as Rita. "It's something awful and terrible to hear about."

Police received a 911 call from a woman asking that they check-up on Herndon's three little boys ages 2-, 3- and 6-years old at their Yakima Avenue home. According to court documents, police found the boys locked in a room with a deadbolt so high they couldn't reach it.

"She fed them -- barely -- through a slot in the door," said Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. "It was like a prison cell, but worse because there was no toilet or running water in the room."

Court documents say the room was covered in the boys' feces and the carpet was saturated with their urine.

"The children were filthy, they did not have good verbal skills, two of them were naked and one had soiled underwear," said Lindquist.
