According to police, A Texas couple left their 11-year-old daughter home alone for days so they could attend a concert in Michigan. John Guerrero, 48, and Virginia Yearnd, 39, were arrested at their Houston home after they traveled to Detroit to see the English rock band Godflesh, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The girl’s great aunt called police Thursday to report that the child had been home alone since the day before. Deputies reportedly started calling Guerrero and Yearnd, who eventually confessed that she and Guerrero were in Detroit for a rock concert.
Officers went to check on the 11-year-old, who they found trying to cook. The girl said no one came to check up on her. Guerrero and Yearnd were charged with second-degree felony child endangerment. They face 20 years in prison if convicted.
