NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - Police have charged a Newport News mother and grandmother with child neglect after a 6-year-old girl was put on a bus to ride alone.

Police tell media outlets that the girl's grandmother, 41-year-old Judy Shields, put the child on the Hampton Roads Transit bus on Sunday evening. The girl's mother, 26-year-old Nicole Porter, didn't meet the child as planned.

Police went to Porter's home and found a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old left alone.

Porter was arrested when she later returned to the home.

Porter is charged with three counts of child neglect. Shields is charged with one count.
