An Indiana couple face charges for what the local sheriff is calling the worst case of neglect he's ever seen.

Police in Vigo County, Indiana removed two small children and a 74-year-old woman from a house, along with 21 dogs, two cats and a bird.

The state board of health has declared the home uninhabitable.

Kenneth Walling, 37, and his wife, 32-year old Tracy Walling, both face multiple neglect, and animal cruelty charges.

More charges may be forthcoming, according to the sheriff.
