BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

A Bluffton couple faces three felony counts of unlawful conduct toward a child.

Bluffton police arrested Benjamin Kochenderfer and Barbara Owen after responding to their Simmonsville home on Sunday night. 

Police said they noticed inside the home an overwhelming odor of feces, garbage and bugs everywhere. 

The couple also had a puppy that appeared to be well fed, but itched and scratched itself constantly.

The three children who lived there were turned over to their grandmother and the dog was handed over to the Beaufort County Animal Shelter.
