UPDATED: Mom Released From Jail After Authorities Find Filthy Home

The mother charged with neglect of her kids after authorities say they were found living in filthy conditions, if out of jail.

20 year old Rachel Ceaser, who was taken away in handcuffs Thursday after her two toddlers were taken away by the department of social services and dogs by animal control, was released on four thousand dollars bond.

The deplorable living conditions were discovered when a woman who put puppies up for adoption went to check on her dogs after she was told they had died.
