A 2-year-old child was taken to Trumbull County Children Services after officers responded to a home on Hamilton Street Southwest at 4:26 p.m. Wednesday and found deplorable conditions.
Raymond W. Browning, 61, is charged with resisting arrest and obstructing official business after he lied to police about the child being in the home and struggled with an officer, according to a police report.
Officers found bad odors, dog feces on the floor of the living room, a dog crate covered in urine and feces and garbage throughout the living room, the report says.
A Garden Street Northwest woman called 911 at 5:05 a.m. Wednesday to report her 37-year-old female partner had died overnight.
The caller told police the deceased woman was a recovering drug addict who had just moved from a sober house into the Garden Street residence.
The woman’s body was taken to the Trumbull County morgue.
The caller said she had gone to sleep about 10 p.m. after talking to the woman, who seemed OK. The caller said she didn’t know what time the other woman died.
