LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington woman arrested earlier this month on child pornography charges involving her 2-year-old daughter now has been charged in federal court.

Authorities arrested 25-year-old Paige Cagle on federal charges of producing child pornography.

Cagle came under investigation in case out of Missouri, where she previously had lived.

A man being investigated for receiving child pornography told police he received a video from Cagle that allegedly showed her abusing the child.

According to court records, police say Cagle acknowledged filming the abuse on a cellphone.

Cagle was being held in the Fayette County Detention Center.
