Former Tulsa foster parents were formally charged Monday with child neglect.

Robert McElvain, 35, Felecia Polk, 25, were arrested last week after police say they found their children living in filth.

Prosecutors filed two counts of child neglect against both McElvain and Polk in Tulsa County District Court on Monday.

The couple used to be foster parents for four children, but the foster children were removed from their care in July after police found them living in “deplorable” conditions, according to a police report.

McElvain and Polk are married to other people, but live together, the police report states.

The two moved into a different house with Polk’s three biological children after the foster children were removed. DHS investigators went to the house twice last week noting is was filthy one day, but was OK the next, the report states.

Tulsa Police ran a search warrant on the house last Monday and officers said the house was filthy, covered in bugs and smelled of urine and feces.

The children were placed in protective custody and Polk and McElvain were placed under arrest.

Polk end McElvain remained in the Tulsa County Jail on $100,000 bonds each.
