JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 25-year-old Mississippi man indicted for manslaughter after his 8-month-old daughter died in his hot car while he worked has been released on bond.

Joshua Blunt’s attorney, Carlos Moore, tells The Associated Press that those in the community helped raise the $15,000 bond set by Circuit Judge George Mitchell.

Blunt appeared Tuesday before Mitchell in Grenada County and pleaded not guilty. He was released late Wednesday from the Grenada County jail after Moore says they posted $1,575.

Blunt’s baby, Shania Rihanna Caradine, died May 19, eight days after another young child died in a hot car in another Mississippi county. The mother in the other case was not arrested. Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest said he plans to present that case to a grand jury in August.
