A Southington woman is facing charges after a 4-year-old child was found wandering alone on the town’s linear trail.
The child was found by two people on Sunday evening, around 5:30 p.m., wandering on the walking trail near West Center Street and Bristol Street, with no adult supervision.
Police said the child had reportedly been playing in the front yard of a home on Germania Street and had walked away from the yard.
Police said 47-year-old Tracy Lynn Dagata was in the backyard of the home when the child walked away.
She was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a child and is expected to appear in court on June 19.
