A Texas man has been charged with causing the death of his six-month-old daughter by leaving her in a hot car and then putting her in the refrigerator.
Michael Thedford, 33, was charged with manslaughter and released on bond. No lawyer was listed for him in online jail records, reports ABC News.
Details revealed in a probable cause affidavit released on Wednesday, state he dropped off his two other children, aged three and five, at daycare but forgot about his baby daughter in the back of the car. He then went back home and fell asleep. Four hours later, he discovered his daughter strapped into her car seat.
He took her out, placed her in a refrigerator “for an undetermined amount of time”, and called 911, the affidavit said.
He later placed the infant on the kitchen floor and attempted CPR on the baby before emergency responders arrived, it said.
He said his daughter was stiff and “hot as a brick” when he found her in the vehicle, the affidavit said.
His wife was at work at the time of the incident, according to police.
