EWING, N.J. (AP) — The mother of two children found living in a 5-foot-by-10-foot storage unit in New Jersey has been indicted on child endangerment charges.
Twenty-seven-year-old Sheena Johnson was charged Wednesday.
Johnson is accused of leaving her 5-year-old and 10-year-old sons unattended in an unlit, sealed storage locker in Ewing with no heat or running water.
The discovery of the children was made April 18 after Johnson was accused of slashing her ex-boyfriend’s tires and was arrested in Trenton.
Police say they checked the storage unit after Johnson evaded questions about who was taking care of her children.
Johnson remains free on $50,000 bail, raised by community members. Johnson has said they lived in the unit for a month because they had no other options.
A message left for Johnson’s attorney Thursday hasn’t been returned.
