Geissenberger says the car’s air conditioning was circulating on low while the temperature in the parking lot was 92 degrees. The child was found crying inside the vehicle.

Geissenberger says Abramenkova told police her daughter was asleep when they arrived at the store and she didn’t want to rouse the child.

Abramenkova was charged with child neglect. She was released on $2,000 bond. Pinellas County jail records did not show whether she had an attorney.
