Dad sentenced after children found in dirty home

PHILADELPHIA - October 28, 2013

Soyika Eldemire, 25, was sentenced to 12 months of probation.

Eldemire and the mother of the children, Lakeeshanaye Overton, pleaded guilty to child endangerment charges back in September.

Authorities removed the couple's three young girls, ages 1, 3 and 4, from their home in the Logan section of Philadelphia.

Investigators say they saw feces, unknown fluids, and trash covering all of the floors, furniture, and a playpen.

Sentencing for Overton was continued to mid-December.
