BELOIT -- Beloit police arrested Codi Davis, 23, of Beloit, after two young children were found alone in a cold car in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Authorities say the children, ages 18 months and 5 years, are OK. Police said the mother left the children in the vehicle while she shopped Monday evening when temperatures were -12 degrees with a wind-chill of -34 degrees. 
 
Officials said the car was not running.
 
The children were evaluated and were determined to be fine. Child Protective Services authorized the release of the children to a family member. 
 
Davis was released and her court date is in February for state charges, according to Captain Dan Risse of the Beloit Police Department.
