A father in Georgia has been charged with second-degree murder after allegedly leaving his 8-month-old daughter in a car for hours.
Davied Japez McCorry Whatley, 20, went to the Snellville Police Department office on Tuesday shortly after 2:15 p.m. to pick up a gun that was in their possession, and was arrested for a warrant that was out for his arrest in relation to a probation violation.
On Tuesday night, according to police, an 8-month-old baby was taken to an emergency room by her grandmother. The 8-month-old girl was identified as Whatley’s daughter, according to FOX 5 Atlanta, and was pronounced dead.
Whatley didn’t tell police that his daughter was in the car while he was attempting to pick up the gun.
