LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) — Police say a Lake Havasu City man has been arrested and accused of manslaughter after his baby daughter was left alone in a hot car and died.

Lake Havasu City police say 23-year-old Ty Martin allegedly left the infant unattended in a car for up to an hour Saturday while visiting a friend, who was charged in a marijuana grow operation.

Officers began CPR on the unresponsive child until a city fire department crew arrived and transported her to the hospital.

Police say the baby was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Mohave County Medical Examiner will determine a cause of death.


Police didn’t immediately release the name of the child and it was unclear Monday if Martin has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
