WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita couple who left their 18-month-old son in an apartment closet have been sentenced to one year of probation.

KWCH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1rYCiBV ) Wednesday that 18-year-old Destiny Lee and 19-year-old Donivan Turner pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment charges.

A maintenance worker repairing an air conditioner in May found the boy inside a closet in the couple’s apartment. Police say the temperature in the closet was about 90 degrees. The baby had been there about 20 minutes.

Lee tells police she left her son alone in order to pick up Turner from work.
