TULSA – A woman was arrested after authorities found her daughter weighing less than 20 pounds.
Tulsa police say Tiffany Calhoun, 27, was arrested November 29 after her 5-year-old daughter was found severely malnourished.
The daughter was transported to a local hospital where doctors say she was dehydrated, malnourished and diagnosed as chronic medical neglect.
Police will continue to investigate after discovering that other parties may have known the daughter was malnourished and did not report the situation.
