KWTX (September 13, 2010) --

Trashena Sanders, 20, and Makayla Jelks, 20, both of Waco, Texas were in the McLennan County Jail Monday charged with abandoning or endangering their children.

Waco police report the women left their children at home while they spent the night out at a local nightclub.

Police say neighbors found Sanders’ 1-year-old and 3-year-old children wandering in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Carter Drive at around 2 a.m. Sunday (9/12).

A few hours later at about 4:40 a.m. Sunday, officers found Jelks' 9-month-old and 2-year-old children alone in an apartment in the 2800 block of Madison Drive.

Sanders bond was set at $30,000 bond and Jelks at $20,000.
