Employees at a business in the 1200 block of 4th Avenue told police the woman had been bumming money from people in the area throughout the day.
The following information was provided by criminal complaints filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court:
CHILD NEGLECT/POSSESSION: Marie Adkins, 36, of Huntington, was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony child neglect creating risk of injury and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance. The arrest came after a West Virginia State Police trooper responded to a business in the 3300 block of U.S. 60 just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday for multiple reports of a woman in the store who was believed to be intoxicated, with a small child.
When the trooper arrived, he encountered the woman staggering across the parking lot, and a 5-year-old boy was walking behind her. The trooper described the woman as having slurred speech and glassy eyes, and she denied taking any narcotics. The woman was transported to a local hospital by Cabell County EMS personnel. An employee at the hospital later told police that two Xanax pills fell out of the woman's pocket as she was transferred from the EMS cot onto a hospital bed.
Adkins's bond was denied.

On Tuesday, a Milton Police officer said a man posted a threat on Facebook that was addressed to the police department and included the statement, "You better watch who you tell your gonna be buried in the river cause you may just end up there yourself, just some advice."
The threat was posted to Facebook shortly after officers responded to several loud noise complaints at the man's home.
Barker's bond was set at $10,000.
