JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — A judge says child care workers missed obvious signs of trouble at a filthy, bedbug- and roach-infested house in northern Illinois where the body of a 1-year-old girl was later discovered.

Will County Circuit Judge Paula Gomora demanded to know why Department of Children and Family Services caseworkers didn’t act when they visited the trash-strewn home in Joliet where Semaj Crosby and her three older brothers lived with their mother and a collection of squatters.
