Grove City mom accused of DUI and leaving child home alone
A Grove City woman is scheduled to answer charges in court next month after police say they found her under the influence after leaving her seven-year-old daughter home alone.
Police say they arrested 30-year-old Karlee Kovalchik at her Chestnut Street home on November 2.
Responding to a request from Mercer County Child and Youth Services, officers say they went to the home to make sure the child was okay.
Police say when Kovalchik came home, they found her under the influence of controlled substances.
A December 14 court hearing is scheduled for Kovalchik to answer charges of child endangering and driving under the influence.
