Two women are in custody facing Child Neglect charges in the case where an 18-month-old toddler was found unresponsive with a dead man.
Arrest reports show Ginger Rolan, 51, who also goes by the name of Ginger Boggs, and Amy Latimer, 39, were arrested on Thursday by Jenks police for not seeking medical attention for the toddler who was described as “near death” by officers.
Police say the suspects told witnesses and neighbors Tuesday night the toddler ingested prescription medication thought to be Lortab. Witnesses described the toddler had blotchy skin and eyes were rolling back in his head and nodding out.
Officers say Rolan is the toddler's grandmother and did not tell her daughter about the child's condition.
When police arrived Wednesday morning they found the toddler unresponsive and “breathing funny.”
The 18-month-old was transported to the hospital where he tested positive for opiates and a hypoxic brain injury. Medical experts describe it as a decrease in oxygen to the brain that can cause a coma, seizure, or brain death.
Investigators say in the same room where they found Allen Lykins dead is where the toddler slept.
They also found multiple prescription pill bottles including pills scattered across the floor in that room and a prescription pill in the toddler's crib.
The arrest reports say Rolan and Latimer did not tell medical personnel about the toddler’s prescription pill ingestion.
Officials tell FOX23 News the toddler is still in intensive care.
Rolan and Latimer are being held on one count of child neglect and a $50,000 bond.
