Meridian Parents Charged With Felony Injury After Child is Left in Hot Car 

Two Meridian parents have been charged with felonies after police say they left their 7-month-old son in a hot vehicle. The child is now in protective custody.

Police were summoned to a WinCo parking lot in the evening hours of Aug. 1. That's where witnesses told law enforcement that the child had been left in the car for nearly an hour. The parents said they eventually remembered they had left the child in the vehicle and ran back to splash some water on the infant while WinCo employees called 911. When police arrived on the scene, they said the inside temperature of the car was more than 140 degrees. The boy was taken to a hospital and later released.

Frayne Hutton, 43, Paula Opyd, 32, were both charged with felony counts of injury to a child.

Bond was set for Opyd at $25,000 during an Ada County Court hearing Aug. 3 and she bonded out later that day. Hutton remained behind bars Tuesday morning on $30,000 bond. A hearing in their case is set for Monday, August 17.
