FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - Police have charged a Farmington woman for allegedly leaving her 20-month-old child locked in a parked car while she went shopping.
Two witnesses reported seeing the baby in the vehicle parked outside a Walmart in the late afternoon of Aug. 14, with the windows down 2 to 3 inches.
Police tell the Sun Journal one witness said the baby was crying.
Following an investigation, Officer Justin Blais issued 34-year-old Denise Boulette a summons to appear in court on a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child. She is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 9.
Boulette told police the baby was sleeping when she went into the store.
