Dad, 23, charged with murder after son, 3, died when he was left in 137F car for two hours


A  DAD has been charged with murder after his three-year-old son died when he was left in a 137F (58C) car for approximately two hours.

Dylan Levesque, 23, left his car unattended in Tennessee with his son Daylin Palmer inside - and temperatures that July afternoon reached 92F.

An autopsy revealed Daylin's July 11 death was accidental and a result of a high body temperature.

Smyrna Police Chief Kevin Arnold said Daylin was found unresponsive in a car at a home.

Officers tried to resuscitate the boy, but were unsuccessful.

Daylin's grandfather spoke to WSMV in July: "He was left in the backseat of the car while his father went inside and went to sleep.

"From what we’re hearing from his mother - [Levesque] had been up for a couple of days. [Levesque] had mental issues and a very bad drug problem. He went inside, passed out and he killed my grandson.”

A grand jury reportedly handed down an indictment this month, adding the murder charge against Levesque.

He was also indicted on an aggravated child abuse and neglect charge by police in July.

Levesque is set to appear in Rutherford County Circuit Court on November 25 for his arraignment.

His bail has been set at $500,000.
