JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Lena Crosby, the woman arrested for leaving her two kids and a sibling un-attended will go before two Hinds County judges on Thursday.

On Tuesday, a Hinds County constable found three children inside of a closet in Crosby's home in the 2800 block of Greenview Drive.

The children ranging in age from three months to twelve years-old were left inside of the home and without food. There were also roaches, sewage and human waste inside of the house.

Prior to Crosby's initial appearance in Hinds County Court Thursday, Crosby headed to Hinds County Youth Court around 10:30 A.M. for a shelter custody hearing.

Crosby exclusively told WLBT that she loves her children and did not harm them. Crosby is charged with four counts of felony child neglect.
