MARSING, Idaho (AP) — Police have arrested a 24-year-old southwestern Idaho man following the death of a 5-month-old girl left in a hot car.

The Caldwell Police Department says that agency and the Owyhee County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday arrested Haven Hackworth in Marsing.

He is facing a charge of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the May 20 death of Kyrae Vineyard.

An autopsy released in July determined that Vineyard died after becoming too hot while left in a car.

Police say Hackworth left Vineyard in a parked vehicle at a car dealership.

Officials say Hackworth had a relationship with the child's mother at the time of the child's death.
