'Deplorable' conditions: Child neglect arrests made in Calhoun Co.

CALHOUN COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – A man and a woman were arrested after three children were found living in what Sheriff Greg Pollan called “deplorable” living conditions.

Now, that man is facing a child porn charge.

Eric Kellum and Elizabeth Herbert were both charged with possession of a controlled substance and three counts of child neglect.

Kellum was also charged with one count of possession of child pornography.

Calhoun County deputies were serving a search warrant on Monday at a home on County Road 424, near Derma, when they made the gruesome discovery.

Deputies seized ecstasy during the search.

All three of the children were under the age of six.

Pollan told WCBI it was some of the worst living conditions he had ever seen at a home.

He also said this started out as a child porn investigation. None of the children in the home were involved in the pornography portion of the case.

The investigation was continuing.
