A man from Loudoun County, Virginia who left his newly adopted toddler locked in his SUV for nine hours on a 90-degree day has been acquitted of involuntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors charged 49-year-old Miles Harrison, of Purcellville, after his 21-month-old son, Chase Harrison, died of heat stroke because the father forgot to drop the boy off at day care and instead left him in the parking lot at his office in Herndon.
