KANSAS, OK- A Kansas woman under investigation for alleged child abuse has been arrested after investigators discovered marijuana in her home on December 8.

Officers noticed an odor associated with burnt marijuana coming from the bedroom of the Sanders’ home.
The child was checked for signs of abuse, but none were found.
