Two Massachusetts parents have been accused of leaving a 1 year old and a 10 year old alone in a car as they gambled at Foxwoods.

Edwine Louissaint of Dedham and David Augustin of Milton face charges including risk of injury to a child and second-degree reckless endangerment, according to Connecticut State Police.

Court officials say Augustin was ordered held on $40,000 bond Friday, while Louissaint was released after being held on $25,000 bond after she promised to reappear in court.

Neither defendant entered a plea.

Police responded to a casino garage Thursday after reports the children were there.

Video surveillance and gambling records showed Augustin and Louissaint were in the resort for over an hour, according to Lt. J. Paul Vance.
