Whitley County couple arrested for child endangerment

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Whitley County couple is behind bars Sunday after police say they endangered the welfare of a minor.

Brittany Powers and Michael Rickett were arrested after police say a concerned caller alerted them to the crime.

Police say the caller said a naked little girl and a half naked little boy were playing in and around the street.

Whitley County Sherrifs say they had to knock on the door of the parents' home several times before Powers finally answered.

Powers said she and Ricketts were asleep.

The children have been given over to a relative.
