Police: TV show reminded man that girl was in car

Hot Car Death Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A police affidavit says a child crying on the television show “Game of Thrones” jogged a foster parent’s memory that he had left a 10-month-old girl inside a sweltering car.

More details of the Kansas case surfaced in the affidavit made public Monday. The document also says Seth Jackson and his partner were smoking marijuana while the child was inside the car in Wichita, where it was around 90 degrees outside.

Jackson is charged with first-degree murder in the July 24 death. No charges have been filed against his partner.

Jackson’s partner told police the girl was hot and stiff when he grabbed her and took her into the house. He called 911, while Jackson attempted CPR.

Police say the girl was inside the car for more than two hours.
