Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A mom is accused of allowing her 1-year-old twins to reach a nearly-fatal weight.
Stephanie Adams, 23, is charged with two counts of criminal abuse in the first degree for abusing her children.
Officials said the defendant allowed her 1 year old twins, one boy and one girl, to be medically neglected as well as severely malnourished.
When Adams turned the children over to CPS, they were immediately taken to Kosair’s Children Hospital where the boy weighed in at 11 pounds and was near fatal, and the girl weighed just 15 pounds.
Arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday, September 2.
