A Texas man is facing child abandonment charges after his 6-year-old daughter apparently killed her little brother with a seat belt while they sat unattended in a vehicle.  Adrian Dreshaun Middleton, 26, faces a charge of abandoning a child after his 1-year-old son was found unresponsive in a thrift store parking lot in May.

Middleton told police he’d left the two children with snacks and water in a Houston lot while he shopped for less than an hour, according to the affidavit. When he returned, he found the baby unconscious with a seat belt wrapped around his neck, and the girl crying next to him, he said.  The girl told police that her brother started crying if she stopped playing with him, and she got angry. She wrapped the belt around him, and when he stopped crying she thought he’d fallen asleep, according to the affidavit.

When her father returned, she told him that she needed to use the restroom and that “she did something bad,” Middleton told police.  Houston police found security footage showing that Middleton has spent around an hour and 40 minutes in the store without checking on the children, who didn’t have car seats, according to the affidavit.  The baby, Adrian Middleton, Jr., was pronounced dead at Texas Children’s Hospital.
