Charleston man arrested for leaving infant in car while gambling



A Charleston man was arrested on Saturday on child neglect charges after leaving his child in the car while going to gamble, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Kanawha County Magistrate Court.

Cody Lane Marchal, 30, was arrested after police received a call of a two-year-old infant being left in a car alone in 81 degree heat in the parking lot outside Mimi’s on Mountaineer Boulevard.

Court documents say that the vehicle was unlocked and running approximately 90 to 100 feet from the establishment’s doors, out of sight of Marchal, while he gambled for 15 to 20 minutes before police were notified.

Marchal is being held at South Central Regional Jail on a $10,000 bond while awaiting trail.
