Walterboro police Lt. Amye Stivender said Pangalangan left her 7-year-old and 6-month-old children in her car with the engine running while she shopped at a Walmart store. Police said the car's air conditioning wasn't working.

Last week Pangalangan's mother, 49-year-old Rita Pangalangan, and a male friend were charged with murder. The Colleton County Sheriff's Office says Rita Pangalangan's disabled 13-year-old daughter was intentionally left inside a hot car for five hours on Aug. 5.
