Wright County (KWWL) -

A 24-year-old Eagle Grove woman is facing a felony charge after Wright County police say her two-year-old daughter was found outside in the rain wearing only pajamas and no shoes earlier this month.

The incident allegedly happened in Galt on November 22. Wright County police say the public helped to identify Ysable Ceplecha as the mother of the girl, and the woman was charged with Neglect or Abandonment of a Dependent Person, a Class C Felony. Ceplecha is currently in custody in the Wright County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Police say they have taken the victim and another one-year-old child of Ceplecha's into protective custody with the Iowa Department of Human Services.
