A medical examiner in Idaho has ruled that a 5-month-old girl who died after being left in a car seat for more than four hours is the victim of homicide, according to the Bellefonta Daily News.
The child was pronounced dead on Tuesday after a family member reported her missing, according the news.
Her mother has been charged with child neglect and child endangerment.
She remains in custody, and a judge ordered her held without bond.
A grand jury is also looking into the case.
The case comes just weeks after a child’s body was found in a parked car in northern Idaho, after a man left her in the car seat while she was sleeping.
Her parents are in jail awaiting trial.
