Citrus County, Florida-- Two adults are behind bars after officials say they found a 9-year-old child's place of residence in "deplorable conditions."

Christina Forbes, 33, and Robert Forbes, 32, have each been charged with one count of child abuse after, reports say, the child routinely went to school smelling of cat urine, wearing the same pull-ups and in need of medication. 

Teachers told officials they often gave the child food and helped clean him up. 

In September of last year, the school nurse reportedly found a roach in the child's ear, and that on another occasion, a roach crawled out of his backpack. 

The child has been placed in alternate care.
