Lexington woman accused of leaving kids in running car

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington woman is behind bars after police say she left two children in a running car outside the Fayette County Detention Center.

Police arrested Brandy Becksted outside the detention center Tuesday afternoon.

She said she didn't want to wake up the two and four-year-old children in her car, so she left them inside while she entered the facility to put money into an inmate's account.

According to court documents, Becksted is charged with two counts of child endangerment.
