Duncan woman charged with child neglect

DUNCAN — A Duncan woman faces the felony charge of child neglect after allegedly leaving two 4-year-olds home alone.

Terri L. Elliott, 26, will appear in court for her preliminary hearing conference at 9 a.m. July 2. Elliott was charged with child neglect after an incident that allegedly occurred Friday and involved the young children.

Elliott committed child neglect “by failing or omitting to provide supervision for twins by leaving them in the apartment alone with no supervision,” according to information filed by Assistant District Attorney Jamie Phipps.

Elliott, if found guilty, could receive a punishment of up to life in prison, a fine of not less than $500 and no more than $5,000, or prison time and a fine.

Bail for Elliott was set at $25,000.
