The mother of a 5-month-old baby who died after being left in a car for several hours Sunday in Iredell County faces a manslaughter charge.

Madison Cassidy Moore, 26, was arrested Thursday, and a magistrate set her bond at $75,000.

Iredell Sheriff Darren Campbell said a detective obtained the warrant based on evidence gathered at the scene as well as the autopsy on the baby.

The autopsy, conducted earlier this week, points to environmental hyperthermia — an abnormally high body temperature — Campbell said. Investigators say Moore told them the baby was left in a car seat, inside a car, for several hours.

Deputies and Troutman Fire-Rescue and Iredell EMS personnel responded Sunday afternoon to a call about a child in respiratory distress at a home on Old Mountain Road, which is where Moore lives.
