Plea Expected in Abandoning/Endangering A Child Case

A Texoma woman facing charges for abandoning/endangering a child is expected to make a plea in the case. That word out of Christine McElvine's pretrial conference Friday. We're awaiting another court date for that plea.

McElvine was arrested on March 31, 2011.

Police were called in reference to a three year old being home alone, in an apartment building on Professional Drive on March 31st.

Police arrived at the residence and knocked on the door, soon after, a small child looked through the window at the officer (this was about 4:30 PM). The child told police his mom, McElvine, 31, wasn't home.

Officers spoke with the maintenance man and he told them, he found the boy in the apartment. He said he arrived at the apartment around 3:30 PM, found the child unsupervised in the apartment and asked his manager to call police.

McElvine later arrived at the apartment at 5:10 PM and told police she went to get gas but called her mother to watch her son. She told officers her son was sleeping and did not want to wake him. Her mother never arrived.

She was then taken to jail. CPS placed the child in the care of a family member.
