Misty VanHorn, a Sallisaw woman accused of trying to sell her children to raise money for her boyfriend's bail, pleaded guilty Friday to a charge of trafficking in children.

Police say VanHorn contacted an Arkansas woman through Facebook and tried to sell her 2-year-old. She then contacted the woman and offered her other daughter, 10 months, for sale also.
