Bond is set at $75,000 for a mother accused of leaving her two toddlers home alone over the weekend. Loran Guzman, 24, was charged Sunday after police say they found her two daughters alone late Friday night on Chicago's far South Side.

Police say both girls are between the ages of 2 and 3 years old. They were found inside an apartment in the 9800-block South Avenue.

Police were called to the home after a neighbor saw one of the toddlers crying on an outside deck. Guzman was arrested when she returned home around 4 o'clock the next morning.

The children are in protective custody.
