CLARION, IOWA – The mother of a stranded two-year-old child left outside in the rain wearing only pajamas and no shoes is now facing a felony and has been arrested.

Ysable Ceplecha, 24, of Eagle Grove has been charged with Neglect or Abandonment of a Dependent Person, based on the investigation conducted by the Wright County Sheriff’s Office  related to the two-year-old girl who was found outside in the rain in Galt on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
