Funeral For Infant Who Died In Father's Truck

An East Texas baby was buried in Lindale today.  Kerrigan Petty, who was four months old, died last Tuesday. Authorities say her father left her in the back of his pickup truck.

Kerrigan's father, Kevin Petty, was a Lindale reserve police officer. Officials say he dropped off his truck at the police department last Tuesday, and headed to a training seminar in Canton, leaving the baby inside for several hours. 

He is now facing manslaughter charges in connection with her death.
