Woman Charged with Locking Kids in the Trunk while She Shopped

What was she thinking?

Police in Weber County, Utah say a woman locked her two kids in the trunk of her car while she went shopping at WalMart.

The children – ages 2 and 5 – became so frightened that they began shaking the car, attracting the attention of passers-by who called authorities. Meanwhile, the good Samaritans instructed the 5-year-old how to use the emergency latch and open the trunk.

When 39-year-old Tori Lee Castillo left the store and returned to the car, police arrested her and jailed her on suspicion of child abuse. The children are now being cared for by Child and Family Services.
