Couple Arrested For Leaving Baby Home Alone

A Richmond couple faces charges after police say they left their 8-month-old child home alone.

Early Wednesday morning, police were called to Manna Drive for a domestic dispute. Police say when they arrived, someone told them the couple, 22-year-old Tiffany Alcorn and 25-year-old James D. Williams, left their child at home.

Police say neither parent admitted to having a key to the home. Once police got into the home, they say they found the baby girl alone, crying on the living room floor.

Police say Alcorn was intoxicated at the time.

Both Alcorn and Williams have been charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Minor and are being held in the Madison County Detention Center.

The baby is now in the care of her grandmother.
