Nashville police said that they have arrested 24-year-old Kelsey McMurtry and 19-year-old Summer Taylor, after they left the 14-month-old child in a hot car outside the Deja Vu strip club.

Taylor was charged with child neglect. They were booked into jail, and McMurtry’s bail was set at $40,000 while Taylor’s bail was set at $10,000.

According to the police investigation, McMurtry asked her friend Taylor, to watch her daughter while she danced naked at the club.

Police found the baby dressed in heavy winter clothes and soaked with sweat. It was determined by police that the baby was in the car for 30 minutes.
