BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say two dogs died when a Nebraska woman left them inside a hot car for roughly four hours.

Omaha television station KETV reports (https://bit.ly/2aQ5EyT ) that 36-year-old Ashley Alberts-Roach of Bellevue was charged with two counts of animal abandonment resulting in death.

Authorities say Alberts-Roach put the dogs in the car around 10 a.m. Friday. She returned around 2:15 p.m., saw they were not moving and brought them inside a garage, where she tried to cool them off with water. Alberts-Roach called police to report the dogs’ deaths.

Police say the dogs belonged to her boyfriend. They say they did not know the dogs’ ages or breeds, but describe them as medium-to-large-sized animals.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Alberts-Roach.
