MOORHEAD, Minn. — A Minnesota man accused in the death of his infant daughter in a hot minivan has turned himself in to police.

Twenty-four-year-old Andrew Sandstrom of Moorhead was charged this week with one count of second-degree manslaughter.

Police say Sandstrom was not considered a flight risk. He has cooperated with investigators and was given time to attend his daughter's burial and funeral services.

Police say 5-month-old Christiana Natany Sandstrom died after she was left in her car seat in the van for about four hours on June 11. Temperatures were reported to be about 80 degrees.

Police say Sandstrom forgot about the infant while unloading five other young children out of the vehicle. He turned himself in to Moorhead police Thursday and is in jail pending a court appearance.
