TAHLEQUAH – A 2-year-old girl is recovering from chemical burns reportedly sustained at her grandmother’s meth lab, Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault said.
Brenda Vann, 54, remains jailed in lieu of a $75,000 bond on complaints of child abuse and manufacturing methamphetamine, Chennault said. Vann was arrested Friday.
The toddler, who was treated at W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah, sustained burns on her side from her armpit to her diaper line, the undersheriff said. Chennault said he is unsure of the seriousness of the burn or whether the girl, now in Cherokee Nation protective custody, has been released from the hospital.
