West Virginia state police say a baby was soaked in urine in the back seat of a parked vehicle where four adults allegedly were using heroin.

The adults were arrested Friday along U.S. 60 in Huntington, about 52 miles west of Charleston.

Trooper J.A. Roach says troopers saw a 1-year-old boy in the back seat.

Roach says the baby's urine formed a puddle in his car seat.

According to a criminal complaint, charges of child neglect creating risk of injury were filed against 56-year-old William Ernest Smith Sr., 54-year-old Gregory Allen Smith, 46-year-old Peggy Veronica Smith and 27-year-old Heather Lynn Bledsoe, all of Branchland.

William Smith also was charged with possession of a controlled substance, and Peggy Smith was charged with an outstanding warrant.
