LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette woman is charged after she left her children alone at a McDonald's while she went to the mall.

According to prosecutors, Dekeeta Logan has been charged with two counts of neglect of a dependent. Police said they discovered Logan at the Tippecanoe Mall food court Friday around 9:30 p.m.

She told police she was "hanging out" while her two children were unattended at McDonald's. A 4-year-old and 3-year-old were discovered by employees. They were alone for up to an hour and a half, according to court documents.

Prosecutors said both children were eventually placed in the custody of a family member.

As of Wednesday morning, records showed Logan bonded out of the Tippecanoe County Jail.
