LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A man and woman are facing charges in Louisville after police say three young children were left alone.

29-year-old Andria Mattison and 36-year-old Shan Spence were arrested just before 4 a.m. Friday.

Jefferson County deputies were trying to serve an emergency protective order at the home on Elliott Avenue.

According to a report, Mattison’s 8-year-old answered the door and said it was only him, a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old inside.

Mattison and Spence arrived a short time later and were arrested.

Police say the 8-year-old told officers that he hadn’t been to school in months.

Both are charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
