Texas man tries to save baby left in hot car by putting her in fridge
He’s now up for manslaughter.
An arrest warrant released Wednesday details what 33-year-old Michael Thedford told investigators.
According to the affidavit, Thedford was questioned at the house and later the sheriff’s department. He told investigators he was caring for his three children, ages 5 years, 3 years and 6 months, that morning. He dressed them and took his oldest children to daycare, but his youngest was sick.
He arrived back home at about 9 a.m., went inside and went to sleep, according to the documents.
“When he awoke around 1 p.m. and discovered he left the child in the vehicle, Thedford went to the vehicle, removed her from the child safety seat in which she had restrained. At this time the child was now un-responsive,” the warrant states.
“Thedford brought the child into the house and placed [the] child into the refrigerator for an undetermined length of time prior to calling 911,” the warrant continues.
