HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The death of a 15-month-old Connecticut boy who was left in a hot car in July has been ruled a homicide. The office of the state medical examiner determined that Benjamin Seitz died of hyperthermia. The toddler's father, Kyle Seitz of Ridgefield, was supposed to take him to day care on July 7th. Police say he instead went to work and left the boy inside the car for an "extended period of time" as temperatures climbed into the upper 80s. He took the boy to the hospital after finding him in the car.
