NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — A western Idaho man has pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter for the death of a 5-month-old girl who was left in a hot car.
The Idaho Press-Tribune reports 24-year-old Haven Robb Hackworth entered the plea on Tuesday after Caldwell police and the Owyhee County Sheriff’s Office arrested him in August.
Authorities say Hackworth left his girlfriend’s daughter in a car in May, and Kyrae Vineyard was found unresponsive and without a pulse.
An autopsy indicated the death was caused by hyperthermia. Hyperthermia is when the body overheats as body temperatures rise much higher than the normal temperature.
