Couple arrested after child wanders in street

COPPERAS COVE, TX - Copperas Cove police report a Cove couple has been arrested Thursday after a two year old child was seen walking down the middle of the street and four children were found home alone.

Kileena Michelle Savola and Paul Kyle Savola were each charged with two counts of abandoning or endangering a child as police investigated the incident.

Officers were called to the 1100 block of Curry Avenue on a report that a citizen had seen the two-year-old walking down the middle of the street, then saw another child come and take the toddler into a home.

When officers arrived they found there were four children alone in the house without parental supervision.

Officers said there was a four-month-old baby,  the two-year-old, an eight-year-old and a 10-year-old.

They also reported that the house was in disarray.

Officers waited and when the parents finally arrived, officers said they appeared to be deceptive and claimed they had been at a gym.

Officers said as they talked more, they said it appeared the children had been left at home alone on numerous occasions.
