(NEWSER)– The Connecticut father of a 15-month-old boy who died after being left in a hot car in July has been charged with negligent homicide, reports the AP.

Kyle Seitz, 36, turned himself in yesterday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest, police say. He was released on a promise to appear in court today to face a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to a year in prison if convicted. Seitz was supposed to take his son, Benjamin Seitz, to day care on July 7 but instead went to work with Benjamin still inside the car, police say.
