WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a Kansas foster parent with murder in the death of a 10-month-old girl who was left in a hot car.

Seth M. Jackson made his first court appearance Wednesday to hear the charges against him. A criminal complaint shows Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office is charging the 29-year-old Wichita man with first-degree murder. An alternative count of second-degree murder charge has also been filed.

He is being held on a $250,000 bond. His defense attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

The girl died Thursday after being left for more than two hours inside a sweltering car. Police say Jackson had apparently forgotten about her until something on TV jogged his memory. Temperatures in Wichita at the time were around 90 degrees.
