PALMETTO, Ga. (AP) -- Police in Palmetto say a 34-year-old grandmother has turned herself in to face charges that her 13-month-old grandson ingested cocaine while in her care.
Police said Ebony Daniel turned herself in late Tuesday afternoon on charges of possession of cocaine, cruelty to children and reckless conduct. WSB-TV reports police are still looking for her 22-year-old boyfriend, Charlie Martin.
Ebony Daniel's daughter, Andrica Daniel, said she asked her mother and the mother's boyfriend to watch her son, Jay'von Daniel, while she took a shower Saturday. She told WGCL-TV that she knew something was wrong when she got out because the boyfriend was looking for his crack cocaine. She took the child to the hospital, where he tested positive for crack cocaine. He was released from the hospital Monday.
