SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A Tyler woman who allegedly exposed a 1-year-old to cocaine has now been formally charged.

Sheikaila Wright, 22, of Tyler was indicted March 1 by a Smith County grand jury for a charge of endangering a child.

Wright was arrested on Jan. 31 and booked into the Smith County Jail. According to an arrest affidavit, officers began investigating Wright on Nov. 28 after a 1-year-old child tested positive for cocaine and marijuana exposure.

Wright never admitted to smoking cocaine around her child.

Tyler Police obtained a warrant for Wright's arrest on Jan. 9.
