ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Investigators found Laura Cheatham ordered childrens-sized prison inmate uniforms from Missouri's prison industries clothing division.

She reportedly told the person in charge of the division the uniforms were for her kids.

Cheatham used to work at the Farmington prison.

She and Daryl Head were both charged with multiple counts of felony child endangerment and kidnapping after deputies found Cheatham's four adopted kids living in squalid conditions.
