A man who placed his six-month-old daughter in the fridge after he found her in the back of a hot car has been charged with manslaughter and released on bail.
Unemployed teacher Micheal Thedford, 33, was arrested on Tuesday after authorities were called to his Collin County home in Texas.
WFFA reported Thedford forgot the child was in the car when he went inside to take a nap.
It was reported the man told police he put his daughter in the fridge “for an undetermined length of time prior to calling 911.”
Police found the child had died and was still in the kitchen when they arrived.
A probable cause affidavit said Thedford dropped his two other children, aged three and five, at a childcare centre before he left his daughter in the car when he returned home.
