A Lily woman has been charged with criminal abuse after a social worker reportedly found her two-year-old child wandering around alone outside wearing nothing but a top Thursday morning.
Bailey Myrann Karr, 19 is facing one count of first-degree criminal abuse.
Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Gilbert Acciardo, the department’s public affairs officer, said deputies were called to Richland Drive off of East Ky. 552 at approximately 11:50 a.m. after the social worker, who was in the area on an unrelated complaint, found the child.
“When deputies arrived at the scene they noted that the child’s hands were covered in paint and she had a severe bruise on her left eye,” Acciardo stated. “The child’s mother was found in a residence asleep and was allegedly unaware that the child had exited the residence.”
Karr is being held without bond in the Laurel County Correctional Facility.
She is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning in Laurel District Court.
