MIDDLETOWN, Conn., Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Connecticut said a woman is facing charges after having two boys, ages 10 and 11, walk home on their own at 4:30 a.m.
Police said they responded to a call at 9:12 a.m. Sunday from a Middletown mother who said she awoke at 8:30 a.m. Sunday to find her 11-year-old son and his 10-year-old friend were in her home instead of at the sleepover down the street they had been attending the previous night, The Hartford Courant reported Tuesday.
The woman said the boys had been told to leave the sleepover at 4:30 a.m. and they walked to her house. The distance between the two houses was unclear.
Barbara Aiello, 71, said the boys were having a sleepover with her 14-year-old grandson and she made them leave at 4:30 a.m. because they were being too loud.
Police said outside temperatures were in the 20s Sunday morning.
Aiello was charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
