Court documents say Scottsdale firefighters found hot air coming into the car and both children sweating profusely.

The baby was described as wearing a short-sleeve shirt over a long-sleeve shirt, as well as a blanket. The documents say Taylor arrived back at the car more than an hour after her interview time.

County Attorney Bill Montgomery says it's too soon to determine if Taylor will receive a prison term or face losing custody of her children.
