Grandmother charged after girl suffers burns

— TAHLEQUAH — Charges have been filed in Cherokee County against a woman whose granddaughter suffered severe chemical burns allegedly while in her care.

Brenda Toniece Vann, 54, is charged with child neglect and endeavoring to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance.

She was arrested this month after investigators were called to a Tahlequah hospital, where the child, who is 2, was being treated for chemical burns over a large part of her body. Investigators said Vann had been caring for the toddler for several days.

Investigators searched Vann’s home and vehicle and seized a methamphetamine lab and other drug-related paraphernalia.

Vann was released on $75,000 bond but was arrested a few days later by Tahlequah police on an outstanding warrant. They allege that they found her to be in possession of meth, marijuana and paraphernalia.
