A Nashville woman is in custody after telling her babysitter she could leave her house, ultimately leaving her two young children home alone for hours.
Court documents say Mary Mundy, 32, left her 7-year-old and 1-year-old children with a babysitter Saturday night.
According to police, Mundy notified the babysitter around 4:30 a.m. Sunday that she would be home in “10 minutes” and told her she could leave the home.
Police said Mundy did not return home until 7 a.m., two-and-a-half hours later.
Mundy was charged with two counts of child neglect and booked into the Metro jail on $15,000 bond.
