It’s a tragedy Geronimo parents still can’t understand.
A foster parent is now charged in connection with the death of a 4-month old baby girl who Geronimo police officials say was left in the back seat of a vehicle for at least 9 hours.
45- year old Billy Dewayne Allen has been charged with second degree manslaughter. He has since bonded out of jail.
Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officials say mame Neta Attocknie’s foster father Billy Allen forgot to drop her off at daycare on September 20th after he took his son to school.
Officials say around 4:30 pm the foster mother went to the daycare to pick her up but found Mame was not there. It was at about that same time investigators say the foster father sent his son to Dollar General in the same vehicle Mame was still strapped into her car seat in the back seat.
Acording to the OSBI both foster parents then rushed to the store to find Mame dead inside the vehicle.
