State police have charged an Ashland woman with first-degree criminal abuse, a felony, in connection with the death of her daughter, according to a news release.
Officers arrested Lakyn Jobe, 19, on Monday after a Boyd County grand jury indicted her.
Jobe allegedly left her 16-month-old daughter, Cally Jobe, with an acquaintance, Brian "Trinity" Brewster, 45, on May 1. The toddler was unresponsive when Jobe returned and died two days later, according to a news release.
The medical examiner's office said Cally died of "abusive closed head injuries," state police said.
