Mother shops with baby in car

December 7, 2010

Indianapolis police say Zella Davis, 28, went shopping Monday night while her 7-month-old baby waited in the car. Davis, who was arrested for neglect of a dependent, left her car running and doors unlocked with the baby inside while she shopped at the Big Lots store at 30th Street and Georgetown Road. Davis took one of her children into the store with her, but left her oldest child, a 5-year-old, at home unattended. All three children are now in protective custody.
