Woman arrested after leaving kids home alone


ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – A Roswell mother is behind bars accused of leaving her young children home alone in horrible conditions.

Autumn Arguello, 27, was arrested Wednesday after a neighbor called police saying she had left her four kids, ages two, four, seven and eight, home alone last week from 9:30 at night to 4:30 the next morning.

When officers went into the home they found feces all over the floor and rotting food.

The kids are now in CYFD custody.
