Parents charged in hot car death of 11-month-old
A Tennessee couple has been charged in the death of their 11month-old daughter, who authorities say died after being left in a hot car. Chattanooga police arrested Travis McCullough, 30, and Jessica Tollett, 24, in connection with the baby’s death on Saturday. Court documents show McCullough left their three children in a car while working at his father’s business on a day when temperatures exceeded 26 C. A woman called police after McCullough yelled for help and then handed her the infant, before driving away. Police spokesperson Elisa Myzal said the two surviving children showed signs of neglect, malnutrition and possible abuse. The children were hospitalized and will be released into the custody of Child Protective Services.
