PREVIOUSLY: A Columbia Township mother is expected in court Monday, accused of leaving her four children in a car while she went shopping.

Police say it's not clear how long Kelly Crossty, 21, had been inside Northgate Mall on Saturday before police found the children.

The temperature outside was almost 92 degrees. Crossty is charged with child endangering.

According to court documents, the children ranged in age from 7 months to 9-years-old. Documents say Crossty is the mother of all of the children except the 9-year-old.
