WAYNESBORO, Ga.---Ten children found in bad living conditions will stay in state custody, at least for the next 45 days. That was the decision following a court hearing Tuesday.
The judge is calling for another hearing in late September.
All the children were taken by social workers earlier this month after deputies found them in an abandoned house with no running water, electricity and little food.
An 18-year old was also found, but is an adult.
Their father, Jeremy Long, is being charged with cruelty to children and is held without bond for now. Their mother has not been charged.
