LAKE CHARLES (KBMT) -- A woman was arrested shortly after midnight Friday morning after deputies say she left her two children, ages 7 and 5, in an SUV parked at a Lake Charles store as she performed a sex act with her boyfriend in a nearby vehicle.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were called to a report of children left in an unattended SUV. The windows were left down and the SUV was not running.
The deputies found the SUV and located the mother, identified as Princess Marks, 25, of Lake Charles. She admitted to leaving the children in the SUV while she performed oral sex on her boyfriend in his vehicle.
Marks said she was unable to see the children and her SUV from her boyfriend's vehicle.
Marks was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center, charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond set by Judge Clayton Davis.
The children were placed with family members.
