Local News

WICHITA COUNTY (KFDX/KJTL) — A Burkburnett couple may face trials for child endangerment after police said they left a THC edible product close enough so that a child was able to get and eat it.

Burkburnett police were called to United Regional Hospital on August 8 about a child who had ingested THC.

The officer said the little girl was asleep when she arrived and identified the girl’s mother as Brittany Martinez, and Martinez’s boyfriend, Justin Kidwell.

A detective said Kidwell admitted possessing an edible containing 120 milligrams of THC and he had put it in the backseat so he could dispose of it but had forgotten about it until he saw the child eating it.

The detective said Martinez admitted knowing the THC product was inside the car in the same area as her daughter’s car seat.
