Mom charged after baby found in car

EBENSBURG – A Cresson woman was charged with recklessly endangering another person Saturday after she left her 8-month-old baby in a parked car for 45 minutes, police said.

Kayla Ehrenfeld, 24, was arrested after witnesses spotted the infant in a parking lot near Shoe Show in Cambria Township, state police in Ebensburg said.

Ehrenfeld exited the store when police arrived “and related that she forgot that she had the baby and thought (the child) was with its father,” Trooper Matthew Evans wrote in a news release.

The Cresson woman was arraigned by District Judge Rick Varner and released on $20,000 unsecured bond.
