A Bridgetown woman is facing charges after police say she left her 21-month-old child unattended in a car.

Kelly Schweinefus, 25, is charged with two counts of endangering children.

According to court documents, Schweinefus left the child in an unattended vehicle while it was running when the temperature outside was 97 degrees.

She is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $30,000 bond.

The child is in the care of a grandparent. Schweinefus' attorney said during her arraignment that the vehicle was air conditioned and the child was left alone for a short time.
