Cedar Hill police say a 7-month-old left overnight inside the family car in North Texas has been found dead. Dallas television station KTVT says the child was left in his car seat Tuesday evening after his mother brought him and two brothers home from day care.

Laheather Wilson, 35, told police she went outside before 6 a.m. Wednesday and found her son unresponsive. Wilson was charged with injury to a child and was being held at the Dallas County Jail Wednesday night. It was not immediately known whether she had an attorney.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner has not released a cause of death.

The overnight low recorded at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was 50.

Wilson's two other sons are now in the care of Child Protective Services.
