WALDORF, Md. — Authorities say a woman has been charged with child neglect, accused of leaving her two young daughters in a cold car while she had her makeup done in a mall department store.

The Charles County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to the Waldorf mall Tuesday evening by someone who heard children crying in a car outside. Police say officers found the girls, ages 3 and 6, and put them in a patrol car.

Authorities say the outdoor temperature was 16 degrees.

Mall security paged the girls' mother, who met with deputies. Deputies say she'd been in the store more than 90 minutes getting her makeup done.

Twenty-eight-year-old Regina Marie Coleman was charged.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Coleman. Her daughters were turned over to relatives.
