SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (KPNX) – Bond has been set at $25,000 for a Phoenix man accused of leaving his baby son in a hot car while he went to work in Scottsdale.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 28-year-old Brokale Lytte Marques was arraigned Monday on charges of child abuse and endangerment.
He was arrested Saturday after his 1-year-old son was found in a lethargic state at the Scottsdale Quarter shopping area.
Authorities say Marques told investigators he left the baby in a car seat because he was unable to find a sitter.
Marques says he left the vehicle running and the air conditioning on.
Authorities say the child remains in critical condition at a Scottsdale hospital.
Marques didn’t have an attorney as of Monday. His case has a scheduled Sept. 30 status conference and Oct. 2 preliminary hearing.
