A three-year-old boy is found by a neighbor wandering on New Castle Avenue alone Wednesday night. His mother is now in police custody.

Lotte Lockwood faces charges of child endangerment. Police say her family was found living in filth with a home full of trash and bugs.

Two of the boy's siblings were being cared for by Lockwood's father, who's not physically capable of looking after them.

The children are now with another family member.

Neighbor Sandra Todd tells NBC 10 that's for the best.

"I think they should be with the relative until she can, maybe, get straightened out," says Todd.
