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.

    There you go. Just put down some newspapers for the baby to pee on. Set out some water. Turn the tv on so it doesn't get lonely... yeah.. good job. Have more kids while you are at it. You can have the older infants watch the newborns. Offer them 1 year in jail OR a vasectomy/tubal ligation.

    The baby is better off with another family. It is probably terrible at what she was exposed to from these two people. Just because people can give birth, it does not make them parents. Both of them need to be fixed. After all, the woman didn't get pregnant on her own, the lowlife man that helped needs to be fixed as well. They're both probably living off the rest of us, using their checks to get their fixes.

    Lock up the parents and throw away the keys.

    This mis-fit mother will get her kid back, you just watch and see! The state will step in and try to TEACH HER HOW TO BE A MOMMY! Make's me sick!

    As bad as it is, maybe it is a blessing. Hopefully, they will lose the baby to a family that will take care of her. If they were fighting in the house, they may not have been arrested.

    I can't believe anyone could be so stupid. Give these babies to someone who will take care of them--just because you give birth to a child--does not make you a mother.

    Mandatory sterilization. Both the 'boy' and 'girl'.
