Carolina woman has been



charged with



neglect after stranding her son, who has



cerebral



palsy, at a gas station.


Spartanburg deputies say 37-year-old Maranda

not answer



"Yes, ma'am" when she asked him



if he was hungry.

Springs convenience



store parking lot and told her son he could walk the five miles



home.



Deputies say the teen called his father, who



called police.


Ross was charged with neglect of a child or



helpless person. She



was released from jail on



a $20,000 bond, and it wasn't known if



she had an attorney
