The mother of a young child who was left abandoned at a home in Anderson County asked a detective why she was being charged during a preliminary hearing Friday afternoon.

According to our news coverage partners at the Anderson Independent-Mail, Tongela McBride asked the detective why she was being charged after the father of her 4-year-old son, 31-year-old Alonzo Brown, admitted to investigators that he dropped the child off and ran away.

"Alonzo (Brown) told you he did it," McBride said, during a preliminary court hearing in Anderson County.

According to the Independent-Mail, Anderson County Sheriff's detective McKendra Bearden said testified that McBride knew her child was missing and Brown had gave authorities untruthful statements. The newspaper reports that Bearden testified that Brown was unable to explain how the child went from Georgia, where the parents live, to South Carolina and back on April 4. Bearden testified that McBride's computer was used to look up the address of the home where the child was left.
