BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) - Police say a New Jersey couple left three young children in a cold SUV for nearly two hours while they were inside a Pennsylvania casino.

The Bucks County Courier Times (https://bit.ly/1mzQO4H) reports police were called to the Parx Casino parking lot in Bensalem on Saturday for a report of three children - ages 8, 3 and 1 - inside a vehicle. Temperatures were hovering near freezing at the time.

Court records show 39-year-old Jarrett Evan Nelson and 30-year-old Ebony Walker, both of Newark, face charges including endangering the welfare of children.

Surveillance video showed the two entered the casino at 7:33 p.m. and returned to the SUV around 9:11 p.m.

They couldn’t post bond and were sent to Bucks County Jail.

Online court documents don’t list attorneys for them.
