DCF investigator, husband charged with child neglect

A former Florida Department of Children and Families child protective investigator is among the two suspects arrested Friday on child neglect and drug charges in Osceola County.

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at a home on Hollyhock Court.

During their search, agents found 26 marijuana plants, 8 grams of marijuana, counterfeit money and a handgun.

Deputies said the home was in a deplorable condition, with overflowing trash and roaches and spiders on the walls and beds.

Agents discovered six children resided at the home, but they were not there at the time.

Homeowners Randy and Kysa Donawa were charged with production of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and six counts of child neglect.

DCF fired Kysa Donawa upon learning of her arrest.
