Babysitter Charged After 1 Year-Old Found on Highway
A Guthrie Center woman is facing a child endangerment charge after a 1 year-old in her care was found sitting on a highway. The Dallas County Sheriff's Office says 31 year-old Catalina Ortiz-Ortega was charged with felony child endangerment after the boy was found on Highway 141 west of Perry. The boy was found shortly before 4:00 Sunday afternoon, when it was 10 degrees out with a wind chill of -8. Ortiz-Ortega reportedly told authorities she heard the back door open but didn't realize the boy had fallen out of the vehicle. The child was released back to his mother.
