(KMOV) – A woman faces charges after police say she abandoned her infant son at a Caseyville hotel on Mother’s Day.
Jennifer L. Hawes, of Sorento, Ill., was arrested and charged with endangering the life and health of a child.
Police say officers went to America’s Best Hotel around 1:30 a.m. Sunday after getting reports of a crying child. That’s when they found Hawe’s 10-month-old son alone in a room.
According to police, Hawes was intoxicated and had possibly been doing drugs when she abandoned her son.
