Infant Dies In Hot Car

GRENADA, Miss. (WCBI) – An eight month old baby is dead and her father is facing charges after police say he left the infant in his overheated car.

Joshua Blunt, 25, is charged with second degree murder.

Police say Blunt’s daughter, Shania Caradine, was found unconscious in the car Thursday outside a restaurant where he worked.

Doctors tried unsuccessfully to revive her. An autopsy is being conducted.

The Department of Human Services assisted in the investigation. Blunt’s bond was set at $250, 000.
