Sasha Brandy McKenzie, 26, and Brandon Shavar Kesler, 28, both of Augusta, were booked into Richmond County jail Friday afternoon, and each faces three counts of deprivation of a minor, booking records show.
Deputies arrived at the house in the 3600 block of Sturnidae Drive about 10:15 a.m. Friday with an active warrant on a probationer and found the home in poor condition, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report. Augusta-Richmond County Code Enforcement was called to inspect and deemed the house uninhabitable.
The state Department of Family and Children Services was notified, and the children were turned over to a family member. Animal Control picked up two dogs from the house.
