Police say mother fell asleep and 4-year-old wandered from house

A Milford woman who reportedly fell asleep Thursday was charged with risk of injury to a minor after her four-year-old daughter was found wandering the neighborhood.
Police said they received a complaint from a resident who lives in the Seaflower Road area that a four-year-old child was in their backyard.
Police investigated and determined that the child’s mother, Alexandra Howard, 24, of Seaflower Road, had fallen asleep and her child walked outside and into a neighbor’s yard.
Howard is scheduled to appear in court June 23.
