Johannesburg - The Vereeniging Magistrate’s Court on Monday postponed the case of a woman who allegedly left two of her small children in her parked car outside a shopping mall.

A court official said Shelly Khumalo's case was postponed to January 13.

Khumalo allegedly left a 6-month-old baby and a 2-year-old child in her car outside the River Square shopping centre in December last year, taking her two other children with her.

A car guard notified police and paramedics. A paramedic broke one of the car's windows to get the children out.

When Khumalo returned she allegedly slapped a police officer. She faces charges of child neglect, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

      useless piece of #$%@ she should be charge with attempted murder not child neglect Jeff Radebe time you look into tougher charges against drunk driving; child neglect (attempted murder) killing police man or woman (treason) knife stabbing which untill now more likely to be assualt gbh must also be attempted murder if you really care do it now

    Seems to be a plague of this going around. Think people! If its hot outside its MUCH hotter in a closed car, dangerously hot.
