An Hidalgo County grand jury reached a decision on Monday not to charge Jaime Hernandez in his sons death.
Hernandez was facing a charge of negligent homicide after he accidentally left his 8 month old inside a hot truck for more than 8 hours. He went to work at Edcouch-Elsa High School and left his son in the car on that day. Both of the baby's parents testified in court, but since jury deliberations are private, it's not clear why the decision was made not to charge the father.
