    I mean, was it real cold and she didn’t want to take him out in the elements while she went to get food? There has to be more to this story that I didn’t see.

    Good she was arrested. I have 2 granddaughters who had a mom who did not feed them well. These women are not mothers, every woman is not a mom.

    Who leaves a 4 year old child alone? I’m sure he was hungry also, but I am willing to bet he was frightened. Yes, charge her, she has got to do better.
