A manager at Bed Bath & Beyond will be arraigned Sept. 25 in Fayette District Court for allegedly failing to help a child who was locked inside a hot van.
Elizabeth A. Miller, 34, of Richmond was charged last week with duty to report dependency, neglect and abuse after police learned she allegedly refused to call police for a Danville couple who found a 3-year-old locked in a hot van in the parking lot of the housewares store on Nicholasville Road. Miller told the couple that it was against store policy to get involved in activities in its parking lot, which a Bed Bath & Beyond corporate spokesman said was not the chain's policy.
