Shelly Hopkins of Muskogee will not be prosecuted in the death of her 49-day-old nephew after she left him in a hot car all day, according to a release by District Attorney Orvil Loge.

Hopkins, who was caring for Justin House after he was born addicted to methamphetamine, went to work and neglected to drop him off at daycare, discovering his body at the end of her workday early in October.

The state medical examiner determined the boy died due to hyperthermia, meaning getting too hot.

“I conclude the death of Justin House as an accident,” Loge stated, “and without any unlawful intent. I decline to file any charges.”
