JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Two teenagers who were featured on the first season of the MTV reality show "16 and Pregnant" have lost their child to the state and are facing drug and child endangerment charges.
Police said Thursday that officers serving a search warrant found their home was filled with feces, flies and maggots.
Joshua Rendon and Ebony Jackson-Rendon, now both 19, were charged Tuesday after the search of their home at the Little Rock Air Force Base. The Arkansas Department of Human Services took custody of their 2-year-old child, who was born while the TV show was taping. Rendon is a member of the Air Force.
Jacksonville police Capt. Kenny Boyd said officers found synthetic marijuana in the house.
