Police say that an Evansville, Indiana, mother showed absolutely no remorse after leaving her 4-month-old son in a hot for over two hours on Monday while she went shopping.
NBC 14 News reports that Kelly Decorrevont, 35, the infant’s mother, allegedly left the 4-month-old alone in her car with no food or liquids while she shopped at a local Walmart. Another shopper happened to see the baby in the vehicle, screaming and sweating, and called 911. She was able to flag down Officer Hackworth with the Evansville Police Department, who busted the car window out and rescued the infant.
The baby was taken to Deaconess Hospital. He was treated and released into the custody of Child Protective Services.
According to the arrest affidavit, Decorrevont “did not seem very remorseful” and told police she didn’t even realize that she had left her son in the car. Decorrevont reportedly blamed her teen daughter, stating that the teen must have placed the baby in the vehicle without her knowledge.
She was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of child neglect and possession of marijuana. She appeared in court on Tuesday and was given a $7,500 bond. She scheduled to appear court again on Friday.
The investigation is still ongoing. Check back with Crime Online as additional information becomes available.
