Not So Great-Grandmother

If I could ask Kimberly King one question, it wouldn’t be who puts down a fifth of Jim Beam while spending the day watching her great grandkids? I already know the answer to that one. She does. The question I’d be asking is what series of unfortunate life choices causes one to be a great-grandmother at the tender age of 50? I’m doing some quick math and my brain is starting to cry.

According to the arrest affidavit, King’s granddaughter left her one and two year old children with King while she went to work.

When the complainant came back four hours later, King was reportedly passed out.

Police say both children had soiled their diapers to the point that the diapers were falling off.

Police found King in the bed where officers shined a flashlight in her face and woke her up.

Police say King had no visible injuries but admitted to drinking a fifth of Jim Beam while the children were in her care.

King has been charged with two counts of child abandonment. NO word on whether she’ll be spending any time behind bars rather than in front of them like she seems to be used to.

  1. When I read that, I thought it’d be about the woman who shot her seventeen year old grandson, but it was not to be.
