MADISON, Wis. -

A woman living at a Far East side hotel was jailed after police said she neglected her toddler.

Police said Jennifer Shaw, 36, was arrested on suspicion of felony child neglect after police found her toddler had been exposed to a liquid chemical in their room at the Microtel Inn and Suites by Wyndham. Madison Police Department Press Information Officer Joel DeSpain said Shaw had been living in the hotel.

According to the report, the 14-month-old boy was taken to the hospital for treatment. The chemical that the toddler was exposed to was not identified in the report, but police said the liquid is undergoing testing to identify it.
