Police say Zoraida Magali Conde Hernandez, 32, allegedly left the infant in her car in a parking lot on the 200 block of N. Glebe Road while she went to work. The boy was in the car for 6 hours as temperatures hit sweltering levels on Friday.

Hernandez “noticed the baby was left inside his car seat when she arrived at a daycare to pick up one of her other children,” according to Arlington County Police. “The baby was unresponsive and she immediately drove to INOVA Alexandria hospital, where the child was pronounced dead a short time later.”

Hernandez was arrested and charged with felony child neglect by members of the Arlington County Police homicide/robbery unit yesterday. She is being held without bond in the Arlington County jail.
