GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A 19-year-old Vaughn woman and her boyfriend are charged with leaving her 11-month-old daughter home alone for several hours while they went to work.

Ashli Ayers and 21-year-old Terry Goodspeed III made initial court appearances Monday on charges of felony criminal endangerment and misdemeanor child welfare endangerment.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/VAP6D5) the baby’s great-grandmother found the girl locked in her bedroom without supervision at about 2 p.m. Sunday.

Charging documents say Ayers and Goodspeed told Cascade County sheriff’s deputies that they had left the baby alone between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., when Goodspeed drove Ayers in to Great Falls to work. Goodspeed said he left the baby alone beginning at 11:30 a.m., when he went to work.

Prosecutors asked that bond be set at $2,500 each. Court officials say neither had an attorney.
