Largo police: father told day before baby's death not to leave him in hot bedroom

Police say the father whose 8-month-old was left in a bedroom with no air conditioning was told the day before the infant's death to keep his children in another room. William Francis Hendrickson, 25, now faces several charges after police found his son lifeless in a playpen on Thursday. The bedroom at the S Belcher Road mobile home was 109 degrees when police arrived. The baby's body temperature was 105.6 degrees and Hendrickson's daughter, 2, was immediately sent to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital for dehydration, according to a police affidavit.
