The temperature inside the car was above 100 degrees and the little girl was wearing a coat according to the arrest warrant.
According to the affidavit, McMurtry, who worked as a bikini and lingerie model and as a ring girl during boxing and MMA events, had left her daughter in the care of a friend, 19 year old Summer Taylor. Rather than watch the child, Taylor left her in PT Cruiser, then went inside the strip club to watch McMurtry's audition according to the warrant.
The little girl was taken to the hospital and into custody by the Department of Children’s Services.
McMurtry, who had an outstanding warrant, initially gave police a fake name when they confronted her.
She’s since been charged with a felony charge of child neglect of a child 8 or less, criminal impersonation and the outstanding charge of no driver’s license. She’s held on a $40,000 bond.
Taylor was also charged with felony child neglect of a child 8 or less. She’s held on $10,000 bond.
Both women are due in court Monday afternoon.
