DUBUQUE (AP) -  An eastern Iowa woman is charged with child endangerment following accusations she exposed two 7-year-old children to methamphetamine inside her residence.

   A criminal complaint says 51-year-old Paula A. Barton of Dubuque admitted to authorities she previously has used the drug but denied any recent drug activity at her residence.

   The Telegraph Herald reports the complaint says hair samples for Barton and the two children all tested positive for meth exposure.

   It wasn't immediately known if Barton has an attorney.
