The case of the Chesterfield mother accused of leaving her baby in a car moves forward in court Tuesday. She is facing charges of felony child abuse and neglect.
Police say it was a passerby, not the mother, that called 911 about a baby left inside a car. This happened back in September in the parking lot of the Walmart on Hancock Village. The temperature was in the mid-80's, and possibly even hotter inside the car.
Police say 31-year-old Angela Case was not around when firefighters finally reached her baby. Once the EMT's got to him, they checked him out and he turned out to be okay.
When police finally tracked down Case, they charged her. She was arrested, but later posted a $10,000 bond.
She is scheduled to appear at the Chesterfield Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court around 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Some Chesterfield firefighters say they get at least a hundred calls a year for children locked in cars, but say majority of those calls are accidents, and parents call 911 right away.
