MANTON, Mich. — A 37-year-old woman faces drug and child abuse charges three months after she and her two children were hurt by an explosion and fire in a northern Michigan motel room.
MLive.com reports that the woman was arrested Wednesday after recovering from injuries suffered May 17 at the Green Mill Motel in Manton, southeast of Traverse City.
She is charged with delivery or manufacture of marijuana, maintaining a drug house and two counts of child abuse. Her name was not released.
The newspaper reports that investigators determined the explosion was consistent with a butane hash oil lab. Several chemicals also were found.
Roughly half of the motel was destroyed by the fire. Police say the woman’s children — ages 13 and 11 — were severely burned and remain under medical care.
