Mother accused of child neglect expected in court Monday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A preliminary hearing will be held Monday for 25-year-old Yvette Harrison, who is accused of leaving her 11-month-old daughter home alone.

Back in February, Harrison left her daughter for about 30 minutes. Detectives say when she came back, the little girl had burns on her legs, arms, and forehead.

Harrison was arrested three weeks later. She's been in jail without bond.

The baby girl is now staying with a family member.

Her mother is expected in court at 2 p.m. Monday. A judge will decide if there is enough evidence to go to trial.
