Woman accused of trading baby for truck returning to KY

LONDON, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities in southeastern Kentucky say a woman accused of trading her infant son for a pickup truck has been arrested in Florida and is being returned to Kentucky to face charges.

The Laurel County sheriff's office says 30-year-old Heather Kaminskey was apprehended in Florida through efforts of local officials in both states and the U.S. marshal's office.

A couple, 31-year-old Jeremy Brown and 33-year-old Jamiee Brown, were charged earlier this month with human trafficking. The Laurel County jail said the Browns have been released on bond.

The sheriff's department says Kaminskey will face the same charge along with pending methamphetamine-related charges when she arrives in Kentucky.

Officials said earlier that the baby was swapped for a 1999 Dodge Dakota and that Kaminskey allegedly sold the truck for $800 and meth.
