A Columbus woman set to be sentenced for dealing drugs has been arrested again after authorities say she gave birth to a baby who tested positive for methamphetamine.

Sentencing for 32-year-old Kristal Thomas was postponed so that she could give birth last week.

On Wednesday, five days after giving birth, Thomas was jailed on Wednesday after doctors reported meth in the baby's system.

The baby boy was removed from Thomas' custody.

Earlier this year, Thomas pleaded no contest to two counts of delivery of marijuana. She is set to be sentenced for that conviction next month.
