Mother Arrested; Toddlers Found Wandering Outside Alone

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- Two young girls are found wandering the streets in Clarksville Friday night. Now their mother is behind bars.

Police say they got a call from a man who found the girls in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

One of the girls was able to lead police home where they found 32-year-old Candace Sellner.  She was on a computer using headphones and says she didn't know the children left.

Police say the home was filled with trash and smelled of ammonia and urine, but no animals live there. Sellner is charged with child abuse and neglect. The Department of Children's Services was contacted and responded to the scene for an investigation.

The kids are now with their father.
