Stacy Gatlin, 21, arrived back in Kent County Jail on Tuesday, according to the jail’s website.

A bench warrant for Gatlin was issued on Monday after she missed a status conference on charges in the case.

Gatlin has been charged with first-degree child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The child – 18-month-old Royal – is now in the care of his father. In an interview with FOX 17 in March, Devon Holloway said Royal has shown no ill effects from ingesting the drug.
