Anna dad not guilty in son's hot car death

Collin County jurors found an Anna man not guilty of his son's hot car death.

Joshua Cartee was charged with manslaughter and two counts of negligent homicide.

In September of last year, his 2-year-old son Jorden climbed in a car while he was taking a nap. Neighbors found the child, but not until it was too late.

Cartee was acquitted on two of the charges. Jurors decided he was not guilty of recklessly causing his son's death by failing to lock the door of his home and not guilty of criminal negligence for failing to contact law enforcement to help find the child.

But the jurors could not come to a decision on one of the negligent homicide charges. A mistrial was declared.

The state could try Cartee again or dismiss the final charge.
