PHOENIX (AP) - A woman has been accused of child abuse after two toddlers in her care were found alone at a Phoenix motel.

Phoenix police say 23-year-old Dajonae Marvette Holden checked into the Red Roof Inn Phoenix North about 1 p.m. Monday.

That was about four hours before two motel guests found the unattended children in a hallway and took them down to the lobby.

Court documents released Wednesday state that the 15-month-old boy and 2-year-old girl were thirsty and in soiled diapers when police arrived on the scene.

Holden returned to the motel just as the state Department of Child Safety arrived to take custody of the children.

She has since been let out of jail on supervised release and ordered not to have any contact with the children.
