Idaho Woman to Be Charged in Toddler Death After Leaving Child in Car
Yet another child dies after being left in a hot car.
An Ammon, Idaho, woman will likely face at least a misdemeanor charge in connection with the death of her 21-month-old daughter.
41-year-old Rebecca Randall is accused of leaving her daughter Elizabeth in her car June 18. An autopsy report shows the toddler died of hyperthermia — the opposite of hypothermia.
Authorities say the temperatures that day ranged from high 80s to low 90s.
Randall’s court appearance has been set for Aug. 22.
