A Hunker woman is charged with child endangerment after she allegedly fell asleep and the boy she was supervising wandered outside, state police said.

Angela Keefer, 35, was caring for the 15-month-old boy on Jan. 29 when she consumed prescription medication and wine. She fell asleep and the child fell out of a window, sustaining minor injuries, police said.

The boy then walked along a roadway until a passer-by noticed him and contacted police.

The charge was filed with Scottdale District Judge Charles Moore. She faces a preliminary hearing on March 27.
