‘I needed a minute to myself’: Wisconsin mom accused of leaving kids ages 2, 7 home alone
MILWAUKEE – A Milwaukee mother accused of leaving her two young children home alone now faces child neglect charges. Tawanda Davis, 39, allegedly left a 2-year-old and 7-year-old by themselves "since sometime the night before," the kids later told authorities. On March 26, just before 10 a.m., police were dispatched to the area near 8th and Vliet, where a public safety specialist said she found the children alone, according to a criminal complaint.
