(WOLO) Columbia, SC-A Florence woman has been arrested after police say she sent a questionable photograph of her daughter to family and friends.
The Morning News of Florence reported that 18-year-old Phoenix C. Jones is charged with illegal conduct toward a child.

Raines says a message with the photo said the girl was packaged up and asked if there were any takers?
An acquaintance who is a foster parent saw the picture and reported it.
It was not clear if Jones has an attorney.
