Kentucky mother facing charges after death of young child
HARRISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Kentucky mother is facing charges after the death of her child.
KSP says emergency crews were called to a home on Horseshoe Drive in Cynthiana a little after midnight Tuesday morning for a child needing medical attention.
The child was transported to Harrison County Memorial Hospital, where the child, identified by the coroner as Karsyn Lena Childers, was pronounced dead at around 12:40 a.m.
We’re told investigators found drugs in the home.
State police say the child’s mother, 22-year-old Bailee Thornsbury, has been arrested on charges of trafficking in a controlled substance (meth), trafficking in a controlled substance (Opiates), possession of controlled substance (meth), possession of drug paraphernalia and wanton endangerment.
She is now at Bourbon County Detention Center.
Thornsbury’s arrest citation says Karsyn’s cause of death is suspected to be an overdose. KSP says more charges could follow pending the coroner’s report.
This is a developing story.
