A Lexington store manager, facing charges for not calling police, appeared in court on Wednesday morning.
34-year-old Elizabeth Miller is charged with failing to report an incident. It is a misdemeanor.
A child was found locked inside a hot van outside the Bed, Bath and Beyond on Nicholasville Road in September.
A couple who spotted the child claims Miller told them it was against store policy to get involved with anything happening in the parking lot.
The child's mother, Tanuja Patel, was indicted last month on reduced charges of 2nd degree wanton endangerment.
