A Delaware county woman is facing charges after she allegedly left her child alone to travel to New York City for the day.
Upper Darby police were called by neighbors at 4:16 p.m. on Jan. 4 to check on a child. They found the six-year-old living in deplorable conditions inside the dirty apartment. A mattress and electrical heating element were on the living room floor, according to court papers.
Shawn Kersey, 35, of Kent Road in Upper Darby, was reached by police. She told them she was on a bus and would not be home for another hour and a half.
