A Lincoln woman has been accused of keeping her infant daughter in such filthy living conditions that there were roach eggs on the girl's feet. Police say 28-year-old Elizabeth Roberts was arrested Tuesday night following a search of her apartment on suspicion of drug use.
Authorities searched Roberts' apartment and found methamphetamine residue and drug paraphernalia. Her 8-month-old daughter was found lying face down on a blanket covered in vomit. Her feet were allegedly covered in roach eggs.
Roberts was cited with misdemeanor child abuse and charged Wednesday with possession of a controlled substance.
The girl has been placed in protective custody.
