A woman whom police found on the ledge of a townhome with two small children in May is facing charges in connection with the incident.

When police arrived they said 23-year-old Kyla Pecarina refused their commands to safely return the children inside.

They say she acted agitated and unpredictable.

Officers eventually made it onto the ledge and rescued the children and later carried her to safety as well.

Last week she was charged with two counts of child neglect without causing great harm.
