NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (TCD) -- A 19-year-old father was arrested and charged after his 1-year-old child allegedly died from being left in a car unattended for too long.
According to a news release from the New Philadelphia Police Department, on Sept. 1 at approximately 2 p.m., police learned that an unresponsive 1-year-old child was transported to the ER by his father.
Police said the father, Landon Parrot, provided inconsistent information surrounding the child's condition. Upon further investigation, Parrot reportedly admitted what had happened to his son.
According to police, the child was left unattended in a vehicle for around five hours. The temperature outside was reportedly 87 degrees at the time.
In their news release, police said "this was not a matter of forgetting the child but was a deliberate act so as the child would not be a disturbance while in the house."
Parrot was arrested and charged with murder, two counts of endangering children, and involuntary manslaughter, records show. He remains held in the Tuscarawas County Jail on $250,000 bond, according to police.
