HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -

A Houston woman is facing accusations of abandoning her children.

Carol Nelson, 27, is charged with child endangerment for leaving several children alone at an apartment on the 5900 block of Selinsky Road in southeast Houston.

Nelson was supposed to move out of the apartment, according to a Harris County official.

Authorities say that when the apartment manager went to see if Nelson had moved on Aug. 20, there were several children there alone while Nelson was at work. One of the children was less than a year old and had a soiled diaper. The unit was said to be in bad condition.

Nelson is being held in the Harris County Jail on $2,000 bond.
