PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh mother accused of kicking her daughter out in the cold during last week’s arctic vortex is expected to face a judge Friday.
A preliminary hearing for Yolanda Williams is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Police said Williams threw her 16-year-old daughter out of the family’s Hill District home last Monday. The temperatures at the time were at or below zero.
Investigators said the teen walked nearly a mile to her aunt’s home, and when she arrived her hands were frozen together.
Williams is facing endangering the welfare of a child and other charges.
