A Hill District woman was criminally charged for sending her shoeless 12-year-old boy outside and into the snow.

Carmella Cosby, 38, of Junilla Street, was charged with child endangerment, according to Pittsburgh police.

Police said the boy was found walking barefoot and coatless at the corner of Chauncy Street and Webster Avenue in the Hill District by a police officer at 2:22 a.m. Saturday.

A police report noted he was walking in "large amounts of snow" and the temperature at the time was 4 degrees.

Ms. Cosby was jailed and at least two of her children, including the boy, were put into the care of child welfare caseworkers.
