Madison County deputies arrested a woman on a Madison County warrant Wednesday that charges her with first-degree wanton endangerment.

According to the warrant, on April 29, deputies were called to a home on Brookwood Drive in regards to a medical assistance call.

The victim was a child who reported Kensyl Burns, 50, Frankfort, was in respiratory distress.

When deputies arrived, Burns was slumped over, unresponsive and had labored breathing.

Madison County EMS arrived and administered Narcan, and Burns regained consciousness.

She told police she had used heroin and produced a plate with a gray/white powder formed in a line with a cut straw on the plate.

The victim had been 8-10 feet away from where Burns used the heroin and overdosed.

The warrant states the condition of the home was deplorable "with animal fecal matter, trash, and clothes covering the floor."

Burns was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center and was released later on Wednesday, according to online jail records.
