Newlyweds spent honeymoon in jail after leaving 3 children home alone

Casselberry newlyweds spent their honeymoon at the Seminole County Jail after police said they left their three younger children alone while they got married.

Kymberely Frederick, 30, and Daniel Richards, 34, were arrested Tuesday on felony child-neglect charges.

The couple left home about 2:30 p.m. to go to the Seminole County Courthouse, according to an arrest report. They left their children, ages 1, 2 and 3, home alone, the report states.

Frederick left a note for two older children, who were at school, telling them to call their parents if Frederick and Richards weren’t home when they got there.

Richards and Frederick told officers that the couple called a neighbor shortly after leaving home to ask her to watch the children, the report states.

The neighbor, who had lent her car to Frederick and Richards about 2 p.m. to go to the courthouse, called police when she realized the children were alone. Two were in cribs when an officer arrived about 3:10 p.m., and one was in her bed, according to the report.

The couple made their first court appearance on Wednesday.
