Staff Writer

An ex-daycare worker is facing two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, a Class D felony.
McKenzie Howell, 19, turned herself in at the Bryant Police Department Investigation Division today at approximately 8 a.m., said Sgt. Todd Crowson, spokesperson for the department.
The investigation began after officers received a report of possible child abuse at Kid's Academy Daycare on Evans Loop.
"After investigators spoke with witnesses and reviewed the daycare security cameras, there was clearly enough evidence to obtain a warrant for Howell's arrest," Crowson said.
After turning herself into police, Howell was transported to the Saline County Detention Center.
