Dog Feces & Trash Lead to Arrest of Mandan Woman for Child Abuse/Neglect


A Mandan woman is charged with child abuse or neglect after officials found an unsupervised 10-year-old girl in a home filled with dog feces.

Tamri Stewart is charged with a class 'C' felony.

A Mandan officer was called to do a welfare check Saturday night.

When he arrived he visited with the girl who said her mom was at work.

He called Stewart and asked if he could look through the house.  She told him no.

She was unable to tell the officer who was watching her child.

The officer returned to talk to the girl who was wearing a short sleeved t-shirt and no coat.

The officer stepped inside to talk to the girl.

He says he was met by an immense, overwhelming odor of dog feces. He says there was garbage and feces all over the floor.

A witness to the case said they saw "five-hundred" piles of dog feces in the house.

Social service workers and authorities later said they found a swarm of flies in the kitchen.
