Mt. Vernon mother accused of leaving two kids unattended for hours

MT. VERNON, IN (WFIE) -

A Mount Vernon mother is in jail accused of leaving her two young children unattended for hours.

Mount Vernon Police arrested Keshia Ward Monday at her apartment.

Officers say the apartment manager called police because the manager saw Ward's 4-year-old son was playing outside in the rain alone.

Police say her 5-year-old daughter walked to school by herself.

When questioned, police say, Ward admitted to falling asleep after taking pain medication that was not hers.
