A Michigan City mother is behind bars Thursday night after being accused of leaving her five children in a hot car while she went shopping.
LaToya Witt, 21 years old, faces charges of neglect.
According to the Herald-Argus, police found the kids in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
At the time, the temperature was over 90-degrees and all of the car windows were rolled up.
The children, who range from 3 months to 5 years old, are now in foster care.
Witt is being held in the LaPorte County Jail, without bond.
