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.
