ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) -- A Rockcastle mother is behind bars after police said she left her child alone outside.

Deputies with the Rockcastle County Sheriff's Office arrested 31-year-old Sasha McHone Thursday.

They said someone called police after seeing McHone's child playing alone outside.

The child was placed with other family members.

McHone is charged with child endangerment, among other charges.
