LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Laurel County mother is under arrest after deputies found her partially-clothed child wandering around outside.
The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says a social worker was in the area of Richland Drive Thursday around 11:50 a.m. on an unrelated call when she spotted a two-year-old child outside a home wearing nothing but a top.
Deputies who responded to the scene say they noticed the child had a severe bruise on her left eye and her hands were covered in paint.
They say there were no adults outside.
Deputies say the child’s mother, 19-year-old Bailey Myrann Karr, was found inside the home asleep and unaware the girl got outside.
Karr is charged with criminal abuse.
