Utah woman facing charges for leaving baby in car
A West Jordan woman is facing child neglect charges after police say she left her baby in a car while shopping.
Police were called to a Wal-Mart in the Salt Lake City suburb on Thursday and found a 21-month-old baby alone in a running car in the parking lot.
West Jordan police Sgt. Dan Roberts said 36-year-old Paige Gottwald had been shopping for at least 30 minutes when police had her paged.
She told police that she didn't believe she did anything wrong because she left the air conditioning on in the car.
