View Comments

MOORHEAD, Minn. (WCCO) – A Moorhead father has pleaded not guilty in the death of his baby who was left in a hot minivan for several hours.

It was about 80 degrees outside the day Andrew Sandstrom left his 5-month-old daughter in her car seat last month.

Sandstrom says he forgot her after dropping his wife off for work. He also had his 5 other children with him at the time.

Those kids have been put in foster care.

Sandstrom faces second-degree manslaughter charges.

His trial is set for October.
