HOUSTON – Two Houston-area Hispanic mothers face charges of having abandoned her six minor children in deplorable conditionsaccording to the authorities.

According to investigators, some of the children were dressed in dirty clothes and their heads were infested with lice. One of the children apparently he was so hungry that he was eating his own feces.

Riccy Padilla-Hernández, 28, and Yures Molina, 34, are both facing child endangerment charges after their children were found living in dangerous and deplorable conditions, according to Houston Police.

It has not been revealed if the women are friends or relatives, but they and all of their children lived in the same apartment.

Padilla-Hernández's children are 2, 3 and 7 years old, and Molina's are 1, 8 and 9 years old.

On Wednesday afternoon, a maintenance worker at the apartment complex where the women live found Padilla-Hernandez's 2-year-old daughter in the pool area without adult supervision. The worker called police and told officers the girl was barefoot and wearing dirty clothes.

When officers arrived at the complex they found the girl's older brother and the little one took them to the apartment where the other minors were.

Authorities said that one of the children belonging to Padilla-Hernandez has special needs.

Molina's one-year-old son was found in a crib eating his own feces. The other children were dirty and infested with lice.

Molina was not present when officers were at the complex, but Padilla-Hernandez returned and told investigators that he was filing his taxes.

Bail for each was set at $15,000 and apparently on Friday they both posted it and were released Friday night.

Investigators said Molina is pregnant. Both must appear in court this Monday, February 7.
