North Carolina parents charged after baby dies in hot car.
(CNN) -- A Statesville, North Carolina, infant is dead after being left in a hot car last month, and now his parents are under arrest.
Sherrie Tiesha Clay and Shakee Duquan Robinson were arrested Monday on charges of involuntary manslaughter and felony child abuse, according to a Statesville police statement.
Police say Clay and Robinson returned home July 27 "with the victim and other children (but) did not remove the infant from the vehicle (for) approximately two hours."
The 4-week-old was discovered by his aunt and rushed to the hospital, where he died.
Investigators announced Monday that the newborn -- whose name has not been released -- died of hyperthermia.
