CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Two local women are scheduled to face a judge Tuesday on charges they left their young children alone in running and unlocked vehicles during frigid temperatures.
Nakeisha Pryor, 30, is accused of leaving her 4-month-old baby for three hours Monday morning, when the mercury was in the low 20s with wind chills in the teens.
The infant was alone from 9 a.m. until just before noon in the Wal-Mart lot off Red Bank Road in Fairfax, court records show. Police responded after receiving a report from Hamilton County dispatchers.
When Pryor was arrested, police said they found marijuana in her pocket.
She is held at the Hamilton County jail on charges of child endangering and drug possession.
Later that day in an unrelated case, Syria Watson, 32 was charged with three counts of child endangering and one count of criminal trespass.
Cincinnati police say she left her three small children inside a car about 8:30 p.m. in the 1900 block of Westwood Northern Boulevard for about 30 minutes. At the time, Watson was confronting another woman "about having an STD by a guy they both are dealing with," her arrest slip states.
Watson had been asked several times Monday not to go to the woman's apartment.
