PHOENIX — A Phoenix woman who left her two young sons alone in a hot car while she went for a job interview is scheduled to stand trial on March 31.

A March 24 final pretrial conference also was set Tuesday for 35-year-old Shanesha Taylor, who attracted sympathy from around the nation with a tear-stained mug shot.

Maricopa County prosecutors reinstated felony child abuse charges against Taylor after she missed two deadlines to fund a trust for her children.

She was ordered to set up the trust after receiving more than $114,000 in donations following her arrest and tearful mug shot that went viral. Scottsdale police arrested Taylor after someone reported hearing a child crying inside a car at an office complex parking lot on March 20, 2014.

Taylor told authorities she left the children in the car because she couldn't find day care.
