SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A Spartanburg County couple has been arrested after sheriff's deputies and a social worker found children living in dirty conditions with loaded guns.
 
Twenty-six-year-old Catherin Michelle Lister of Moore was arrested Sunday and charged with two counts of child neglect.

The officer found a 12-gauge shotgun and .22-caliber rifle, loaded and with the safety mechanisms off within reach of the children, ages 2 and 4.
 
The deputy confiscated the guns.
 
The children are in protective custody.
 
It was not clear if the couple has legal representation.
