JUNEAU, WI (WTAQ) - A Dodge County woman cannot see her two young children without supervision, after she was accused of allowing them to live in squalor.

25-year-old Secoy Koch-Miller made her first court appearance Monday on charges of felony and misdemeanor child neglect.

Authorities said they found her newborn baby and a two-year-old living among mice and human waste last week, in a house in the town of Burnett which has been condemned. Reports said the toddler was underweight, and had spiders and bug bites.

The children's grandmother denied to a reporter that the children were neglected, and they were in the process of moving out of a bad situation.

Koch-Miller is due back in court May 1st for a preliminary hearing. She's under a $1,000 bond with an order that she not her children without being supervised.
