Crystal Marshall faces child endangerment charges

CINCINNATI - An Ohio woman faced child endangerment charges Friday after police found a 2-year-old in her care wandering alone on a busy street.

Cincinnati police arrested Crystal Marshall, 39, about noon Thursday after officials found a 2-year-old she was supposed to be watching walking down the street without adult supervision. The child walked more than a half-mile away from Marshall’s residence, WCPO reported.

Marshall is charged with child endangering and was scheduled to answer to the charges Friday.
