ORLANDO, Fla. -- (WKMG) -- Lucie Justice, 49, was arrested Friday morning at her home in Daytona Beach by the Daytona Beach Police Department for three charges of child neglect, with more charges possibly on the way.

In addition to not supplying her three children with proper food, nutrition or shelter, Justice also may be charged with animal neglect for her two dogs and cat, depending on the authorities' investigation.

Officers arriving on the scene said there was an apparent smell of mold in the residence, and upon further investigation, authorities say black mold was found, along with a broken pipe and standing water.

Authorities also say there has been no electricity or air conditioning since October. After examining the rest of the house and finding no food in the refrigerator, authorities talked to Justice’s neighbors. Karen Hussey told authorities that she has seen men come and go from the house during all hours of the day, suspecting Justice of prostitution.

According to authorities, Justice also had several open sores on both her arms, indicating possible drug use.
