JENKS, Okla. - Two people have been arrested in connection with Wednesday's discovery of a dead man and brain-damaged toddler inside a Jenks apartment, including the grandmother of the child.
Arthur said 50-year-old Ginger Rolan turned herself over to authorities Thursday afternoon, while Amy Latimer, a 39-year-old described as a family friend, was arrested in Glenpool.
Both are facing felony neglect charges.
Jenks officers were called to the Shelby Place Apartments in the 400 block of East Aquarium Place Wednesday morning, only to discover a man dead on the couch and an 18-month-old boy unresponsive.
The child, who family members say is Kyson Thompson, was transported to the hospital in critical condition. Officials say the boy suffered brain damage and was in a coma upon arrival to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with hypoxic brain injury and tested positive for opiates.

Investigators said Thursday the child was found in the same room with 48-year-old Ray Allen Lykins, who "had been deceased for several hours." Multiple pill bottles were discovered in the room, with pills "strewn all over the floor," according to Rolan's arrest report.
The report also states a pill was found in the toddler's crib.
Police say Rolan told them she believed the boy ingested a Loritab. The report alleges Rolan told witnesses the child had taken medication Tuesday, but didn't call 911 for at least 12 hours.
By that time, neighbors say the boy was visibly blotchy and red, with his eyes "rolling back in his head and nodding out." Hospital officials say the child was moved to stable condition Thursday.
Given the number of pills recovered at the apartment, authorities say they don't believe there were any signs of foul play involved with Lykin's death, instead leaning toward the possibility of an accidental overdose.
Police say there were at least three other people in the apartment at the time, who told investigators they had no idea 48-year-old was dead. They also reported Lykins had taken prescription medications and had been acting strangely.
