Woman Finally Arrested for Leaving Child Home Alone
A mother was arrested and charged with child neglect and child endangerment after leaving her 8-year-old son home alone over the Memorial Day weekend while she traveled out of state, according to WTKR.
Suffolk Police responded to the 100 block of Windsor Court on Saturday after receiving a report about a boy being left home alone. Child Protective Services came and took the boy away.
Kionna Moret, 27, of Suffolk, Virginia, was taken to Western Tidewater Regional Jail, but she was later released on bond. Her son is still in the care of Child Protective Services, according to a WAVY-TV.
The Grio reported that the mother told her son to keep her travel a secret while she went to South Carolina for the holiday. He said his mother threatened to spank him if he told anyone that she was not at home.
The boy’s mother left him enough food to eat while she was gone. It was enough corned beef hash and pizza to last until she returned. She also left him with a cell phone to check in with her every hour. Read More….
