A young Oklahoma mother has been arrested after she allegedly tried to sell her children on Facebook.
Police say that Misty VanHorn, 22, contacted a potential buyer via the social networking site. She was apparently asking $4000 for her two-year-old and 10-month-old but would accept $1000 for the two-year, the Seqouyah County Times reported.

The report also stated that VanHorn was trying to sell the children by Mar. 4 to post bond for her boyfriend.
Knight’s remains found in parking lot
The remains of a medieval knight were located under a former parking lot in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Archeologists excavated the site and uncovered a sandstone slab decorated with the markings of nobility, the Calvary Cross and an ornate sword, the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation said in a press release.
“This find has the potential to be one of the most significant and exciting archeological discoveries in the city for many years, providing us with yet more clues as to what life was like in medieval Edinburgh,” Coun. Richard Lewis, the City of Edinburgh’s cultural convener, said in the release.
The knight is the second nobleman to be unearthed this season as the remains of King Richard III were found in a parking lot in England in Feb.
