KINGMAN (AP) - A Kingman woman has been arrested after authorities say her baby daughter was left outside without shoes or supervision.
Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 24-year-old Amanda Rose Chipman is being held on suspicion of child endangerment and drug possession.
It was unclear Wednesday if she has a lawyer.
Sheriff's deputies went to Chipman's home about noon Tuesday after receiving a call about an unattended toddler crying in a fenced area.
They found a barefoot 1-year-old girl in the home's front yard wearing a shirt and a diaper.
Deputies say nobody answered knocks on the door and they found Chipman asleep inside the house with a marijuana pipe and other drug-related items.
Chipman told authorities she didn't know her baby was outside. The child was released to a relative.
