HOT SPRINGS — Authorities issued an arrest warrant for Garland County circuit judge Wade Naramore in connection to his son’s death, after he was left in a hot car.

Naramore is charged with the Class A misdemeanor of negligent homicide for the death of his son, Thomas Naramore in July 2015, according to THV 11.

An affidavit outlines the following as part of the probable cause of Thomas’ death:

– Naramore reportedly stopped for breakfast with his son, which was out of the ordinary because he usually prepared breakfast at home.
– Naramore was worried about a court case he had that day.
– He went to work as he usually did each day, but got off work early, ran errands, and went home.
– In the afternoon, he was reportedly leaving his home to pick up his son from daycare, and as he turned the corner, he heard a noise and saw his son in the backseat.  He had not been dropped off at daycare as intended.
– Naramore is said to have then immediately stopped the car, and called for help.

Naramore turned himself in to the Garland County Detention Center in Hot Springs on Thursday, reported THV 11. He was booked and released on a $5,000 bond.
