HOUSTON The reported father of a baby found in a filthy Liberty County home has been found and arrested.

Aaron Michael Parker is in custody on a probation violation after investigators found a baby covered in cockroaches while investigating an animal abuse complaint on Tuesday.

They also found a dead horse and other animals living in terrible conditions.

Mabel Jo Larsen, who claims to be the child s mother, is also in jail on a probation violation.

The baby is now in a foster home.

Just three years ago, Child Protective Services said it removed five other children from inside the same mobile home. CPS confirmed Parker s 10-year-old daughter was the first to be removed from the home.
