A Tennessee couple in Chattanooga has been charged in the death of their 11-month-old daughter, who authorities say died after being left in a hot car. Officers say 30-year-old Travis McCullough was charged with criminal homicide and aggravated child neglect and 24-year-old Jessica Tollett was charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect. Police say McCullough left their three children in a car while working at his father’s business Saturday (July 8, 2017), when temperatures exceeded 80 degrees. A woman called police after McCullough yelled for help and handed her the infant, before driving away. Chattanooga police say the two surviving children showed signs of neglect and malnutrition and were hospitalized. They were placed in child protective services’ custody.
