A Castorland woman is accused of leaving a 6 year old child in a car unattended for about 40 minutes Thursday afternoon.
Jefferson County sheriff's deputies say 28 year old Gwendolyn Holton left the girl locked in the car in the J.C. Penney parking lot at the Salmon Run Mall in Watertown.
Deputies say the car wasn't running.
Holton was charged with a misdemeanor count of child endangerment.
She's scheduled to appear in Watertown town court later this month.
