ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene mother was indicted Thursday for allegedly leaving her children unsupervised in a public street.

Summer Helvey, 20, and Frank Rodriguez, 19, were arrested on child endangerment charges in September 2012.

According to police, one of their children was found naked and the other extremely dirty. Officers said one of the children almost got run over.

Police said they found Helvey and Rodriguez inside a home that smelled of marijuana.

A Taylor County grand jury decided Thursday there is enough evidence to indict Helvey for child endangerment.
