Be O and Wah Eh, both 27, of Marshalltown, each are charged with child endangerment without injury, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department, said the couple left their 3-year-old and 7-year-old daughters in car unattended while they were in Goodwill, 100 La Frenze Lane.
