DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas woman whose year-old daughter died after being left for hours in a car has told authorities she thought she dropped off the child earlier at a day care.

An arrest warrant reveals details of an interview police conducted with 42-year-old Vibha Marks. The Dallas Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/184I9NO) Wednesday that Marks told police she was certain she had left her daughter at the day care before driving to her teaching job at a Dallas elementary school.

A passer-by noticed the child in the vehicle Friday afternoon. Temperatures were in the upper 80s that day.

Marks has been charged with child abandonment. She posted a $50,000 bond and was released from the Dallas County jail Saturday.

An attorney for Marks was not immediately available for comment Wednesday.
