Local News

An Eau Claire mother and father have been charged after leaving their three-year-old home alone.

The complaint was filed in Eau Claire County Court against 28-year-old Cristina Hernandez- Villarreal and 34-year-old Kanlaya Lo.

It says law enforcement arrived at a home on Eau Claire’s west side Monday morning on a report of a 3-year-old left home alone.

When Hernandez-Villarreal arrived at the home later that morning, she told police she thought Lo had hired a babysitter to watch over them.

However, Lo told police he had never arranged for a sitter.

Hernandez- Villarreal is free on a $1,500 signature bond.

An initial appearance for Lo is set for Jan. 16.
