KEARNEY, Neb (KSNB) Saying that children staying in her home tested positive for methamphetamine, prosecutors have charged a Kearney woman with felony child abuse.

Hannah Pauly, 23, was one of two people arrested January 11 after the Central Nebraska Drug Task Force found nearly five pounds of methamphetamine in her home. After the bust, she was charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine.

Investigators took hair samples from two children found living in the home. The test showed the children had traces of meth in their systems. Prosecutors have also charged Pauly with felony child abuse.

Jose Santos-Zepeda was also arrested January 11 and has been charged with felony meth distribution.

Both Pauly and Santos-Zepeda will be in court next month for hearings on the case.
