CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
A mother is facing felony charges after a toddler was found home alone, and police believe she'd been left alone for days.
The child, a 16-month old girl, had been left in disgusting conditions at an apartment near E. 30 and Central. A grandmother found the little girl and she told police the child even had maggots crawling on her. Investigators say it can take up to three days for maggots to form.
A police report shows the home had no food, a broken crib, dirty diapers, and a strong odor.
The child was taken to the hospital to be fed, cleaned up and checked out. She is now with relatives. We've learned the mom told police she'd only been gone about "seven minutes."
Cuyahoga County social workers say they had just opened a case last month on Nikia Banks for neglect. The agency says a worker had seen the child, met with the mom, and met with relatives.
Records show Banks was also wanted at the time by Mentor Police in a theft case.
