taber arrestGRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (8/14/17) — A Graves County woman went to jail yesterday after police say two small children in her care were found walking in the road.

Authorities reported that at approximately 9:30 a.m., Kentucky State Police received a call about children walking in the road near the 5000 block of Kentucky 339 North in Graves County.

Trooper Aaron Jestes located the children with the assistance of the caller, who had helped move the children to a safe place off the road. The 2- and 4-year-old children were not injured.

Shortly after, Jestes located Hannah Taber asleep in a nearby residence and ascertained Taber was responsible for the children but was unaware of their whereabouts.

Taber, 25 of Hickory was charged with two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and lodged in the Graves County Jail.

The investigation is continuing.
