Father of child left in hot car arrested again


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The father of the child left in a hot car back on June 28 has been arrested again.

According to a court document, King was arrested by a Dothan police officer on Aug. 10 for public intoxication.

King and his wife Melinda Gail King were previously charged with first-degree manslaughter and possession of marijuana when their two-year-old child Castiel died after being left in a car for hours.

They both were released on bond, but now Robert King may soon end up in jail for the days leading up to his trial.

The state has filed a motion to revoke his bond since he allegedly committed a crime while out on bond.
