MANCHESTER, N.H. – A New Hampshire woman accused of leaving her children in rooms covered with dog and human feces and trash has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Samantha Grenier, of Manchester, was arrested earlier this year in Florida after she failed to show up for a hearing. WMUR-TV reports the 27-year-old Grenier said Tuesday she wants help, and wants to be a better mother, wife, and friend.
Grenier was charged with criminal restraint, reckless conduct and endangering the welfare of a child. Police said her 4-year-old son was in a harness with a childproof lock attached to a bed covered with feces and urine. The floor and a wall also had feces. Her 2-year-old daughter was unclothed and covered in feces inside her crib.
Grenier's husband, 26-year-old James Grenier, was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison.
