A pregnant mother of four accused of padlocking her youngest three in a feces- and rat-filled home reportedly admitted to smoking meth before her kids were discovered — one allegedly on the brink of death.

Parents Amanda Foley and Mark Dorson, both 33, were ordered held on $100,000 bail Wednesday for felony criminal mistreatment and abandonment charges after Saturday’s disturbing discovery outside Everett, Wash., KIRO-TV reported.seattle6n-5-web

Their children, ages 7, 3, and 11 months, were found behind padlocked doors by Lake Stevens police after a call from a concerned woman.

“They were surrounded by animal feces and garbage with no heat or food present,” police said after breaking into the ramshackle house of horrors. “It is unknown how long the children were left unattended, but the parents did not show up at the residence and had to be tracked down by investigators.”

The abandoned baby was suffering hypothermia and dehydration when found in an upstairs crib, said police.

“Police said the baby would have died had it not been for us calling police that night,” Sarah Parsley, who called authorities after failed attempts to reach Dorson.

Foley broke down in tears during her first court appearance Wednesday, a day after her arrest, after a judge told her she would not have contact with her children.


“She should be crying. She should feel bad,” Becky Hensley, the stepmother of Foley’s oldest daughter, who lives with her.

“How can you be a parent and treat your kids that way, and call your daughter once every three months? I have five kids; they’re my life,” she said.

The mom and dad each have criminal records as well as a history of Child Protection Services complaints and Health Department and Code Enforcement issues, police said.
