PHOENIX (AP) - A 35-year-old Phoenix woman who left her young children in her car last month to attend a job interview in Scottsdale is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning on child abuse charges.

Scottsdale firefighters say they found both children sweating profusely and hot air coming into the vehicle.

A booking mug shot of Shanesha Taylor's tear-stained face has won her support and donations.

A New Jersey woman set up a fundraising website for the mother who relies on food stamps. It has now collected nearly $90,000.

According to court documents, a witness on March 20 reported to police that Taylor's 2-year-old son and 6-month-old baby were unattended in the car.
