(WTHR) Yorktown, Indiana court documents show 26-year-old Daisha Sue Clark had been staying with a relative while she was on house arrest. The records indicate that's where Clark admitted to police she found her 1-year-old son near her bedroom with plastic in his mouth and a powdery substance on his face.
