Tenn. parents charged with first-degree murder in hot car death of 2-year-old son, who was left in vehicle overnight



Tennessee parents have been charged in the hot car death of their 2-year-old son after the child was left alone in a vehicle overnight.

Jade Phillips and Anthony Phillips were arrested Monday and hit with first-degree murder and other charges, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.
Little Kipp was found dead on July 14 after one of the parents called 911 and reported leaving the child in the vehicle. Jade Phillips attempted CPR, according to WNCN.




"We believe they made the call when they got up," Gatlinburg Police Chief Randall Brackins told WNCN. "Their work schedule, they work late at night from the previous night and what we understand, the child was left in the car from the night before."

The car was parked outside Westmoreland Mayor Jerry Kirkman's home in Gatlinburg. A neighbor said Jade Phillips, the mayor's daughter, had been living in the house with her husband and Kipp, according to the News Sentinel.
"They seemed like good people, but I guess you never know," neighbor Freeda Hall told the newspaper.

Chief Brackins told the newspaper last week that the parents were "distraught, very upset."
"They were very unbelieving of what was occurring," he told the newspaper. "They just couldn't believe it was happening."
