PHOENIX (AP) - A jury has found a Phoenix man guilty of negligent homicide and child abuse in the 2015 death of his 2-year-old son who was left unattended in a hot car.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say jurors also acquitted James Koryor of manslaughter on Tuesday. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 16.

Phoenix police say Alpha Koryor died of heatstroke in April 2015 after he was left for more than 2 1/2 hours inside the family car on a 90-degree day.

They say the 43-year-old Koryor was impaired by alcohol after running an errand with his two youngest children in the car.

Koryor returned home and took a nap. He awoke several hours later to his wife screaming after she found Alpha still inside the car and not responsive.
