Pittsburgh police said that a Hill District woman was indicted this morning on charges that she endangered the welfare of her 16-year-old daughter, who went to an aunt’s house on Tuesday, with frozen hands.

Yolanda Williams, 42, is being held in the Allegheny County Jail, in lieu of $1,000 bail, according to court documents.

She faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child and recklessly endangering another person.

The girl told police that her mother smoked crack, packed her bags, took her key and told her she had to leave her house, according to a criminal complaint. The girl then went to the home of her aunt and arrived there with frozen hands.

Williams told police that her daughter picked up her clothes and said that she wanted to leave.
