Monaca Mother Ordered To Stand Trial

MONACA (KDKA) — The mother of three children found living in filth in Beaver County has been ordered to stand trial.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for the children’s father.

Kimberly Flynn, 37, and Gilberto Rodriguez, 38, are accused of leaving their 2-year-old son, 2-year-old daughter and 1-year-old daughter in deplorable conditions at their Monaca home.

When police first responded to the house, they say Flynn wasn’t home and they found Rodriguez playing computer games in the back bedroom.

Police say the couple left rotting food and trash everywhere. There was human waste all over the house and hundreds of flies.

Flynn and Rodriguez are charged with endangering the welfare of children and reckless endangerment.

During the hearing, Flynn told court officials Rodriguez is somewhere in Tennessee and had no intention of showing up for today’s hearing.

That’s when they issued a warrant for his arrest.

Flynn’s lawyer is trying to iron out a plea deal.

    This is exactly how I would have decribed her without even seeing the pic. Some things never change.

    They should put them both away and throwaway the key PIGS..

  3. JustSaying says:

    Forget about the adults, they’re a write-off (in every sense of the term). What about the kids? Does ANYONE think they have even the REMOTEST chance of growing up to be normal, productive members of society? Thought so….

    Ok JustSaying….then what do you do about it? I wouldn’t argue with your point but I do not see you suggesting anything to help them going forward.

    1. JustSaying says:

      They should be legally separated from the Mother and put up for adoption as the Mother has demonstrated a complete and utter failure as a parent. At their young age and assumed ethnicity they should be adoptable. Possibly then they would have a better chance of growing up as normal, well-adjusted children. The Mother would fight this of course since it would amount to a pay cut for her welfare checks.

    Just for the record, Rodriguez is not the father of those 3 kids
