A 7-month-old baby is dead and his father under arrest on a homicide charge after an incident Tuesday on Long Island.

Devon A. Fenner, 25, of Hempstead had driven home with his son, Nassau County police said. He told police that 1:40 p.m. that he realized that he forgot to take his son from inside the 2003 Toyota that was parked in front of his house.

Police said that Dominick Fenner was left in his car seat unattended in the vehicle for approximately 30 minutes.

Emergency Medical Technicians and Hempstead Police responded to the 911 call from the home stating that the baby was not breathing. Crews started CPR on the boy and he was rushed to Mercy Medical Center.

The baby was dead by 2:27 p.m.

Police arrested and charged Fenner with criminal negligent homicide.

He was arraigned on Wednesday in Hempstead where he pleaded not guilty. A judge set bail at $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash, according to the Nassau County District Attorney's Office.

Fenner is due back in court August 28.

A court document estimated the temperature inside the car at 119 degrees, the Associated Press reported.
