Dept. of Children and Families removes children from filthy home

- A Volusia County woman is charged with child neglect after deputies find her and her children living in a filthy home in Pierson.

Deputies say Victoria Kanger and her two children - ages 5 and 14 - were living in a cockroach-infested home.

Deputies say the 5-year-old's father and his new girlfriend called 911 after seeing the home while they were taking his daughter food.

Besides the filthy living conditions, deputies say they also found three dead dogs in the freezer.

Kanger told them that she didn't have a shovel to bury them, so she froze them in the meantime.

Kanger's children are staying with family while the Department of Children and Families investigates.
