Home Alone

Woman arrested for DUI had left handicapped child home alone

Suburban Cincinnati police added a child endangerment charge to two counts of drunken driving against a woman after learning she had left her 3-year-old handicapped daughter home alone.

Police knocked down the door to 35-year-old Gina Norman's Norwood apartment early Saturday morning to rescue the abandoned child, Makayla Louise Marie Browning, who has spina bifida.

Norman is to appear in court this morning. Police say Norman had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit of point-zero-eight.
