A 24-year-old Lincoln woman who failed to show up to be sentenced for her role in the death of a 12-year-old girl was found and arrested Saturday night.

Police found Ashley Jackson hiding in a trailer parked on a lot in northeast Lincoln. She pleaded no contest in December to child abuse resulting in death.

Prosecutors say Jackson brought Serena Garrett to her home to babysit her infant twins last March. Jackson smoked methamphetamine and supplied the girl and other people at her house with alcohol and drugs.

Police say after Jackson left, Serena was sexually assaulted by a 20-year-old man and then died of a prescription drug overdose.

Jackson was being held in the Lancaster County Jail on Sunday.
