A Tennessee woman is now behind bars after video shows two young children traveling in pet kennels inside her auto.

WMC reported that Leimome Cheeks, 62, of Memphis, was charged with two counts of child endangerment, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison if convicted. Memphis Police said the children were seven and eight years old, and the kids told cops it was really hot in the back of the truck.

They said their grandmother told them to sit in the kennels because there was no room in the trunk. Temperatures in the area reached about 35 degrees Celsius.

Cheeks said that she checked on the children periodically and they were later let into the back of the vehicle.

Neighbors of Leimome Cheeks expressed shock, saying she was a 'very nice woman'.

Camillia Cowan, who said she was Cheeks' neighbor, according to WHBQ, was deeply troubled when she saw the video online. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her". I only met her like once maybe twice.
