Utica Woman Arrested For Endangering Child
A Utica woman who allegedly left her 5-year old daughter outside in sub-zero temperatures is facing charges.
25-year old Mahelia Manuel is charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
New Hartford Police say they were called to Oxfoird Road on Wednesday by a concerned resident who saw the unsupervised child, who was not wearing a hat or mittens.

It was determined that the child was exposed to the temperatures for an unreasonable amount of time.
