PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. (AP) -

Child endangerment charges were filed against a New Jersey man who allegedly left a toddler home alone for about four hours.

Bail was set at $100,000 cash for Bernie Kidd, 26, of Phillipsburg for leaving a two-year-old child unattended on June 21. Kidd’s relationship to the child has not been disclosed, but authorities say he will be barred from having contact with the child or the child’s family if he posts bail.

Kidd faces up to 10 years in state prison if convicted.
