A man has been charged with second-degree murder after his eight-month-old daughter died in his overheated car in Mississippi.

Grenada Assistant Police Chief George Douglas said 25-year-old Joshua Blunt is being held in custody after his daughter Shania Caradine was found unconscious in the overheated car outside a restaurant where he worked on Thursday afternoon.

Grenada County Deputy Coroner Jo Morman said the child was taken to a hospital but medics could not revive her. A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.

Shania was the second child to die in a hot car in Mississippi this month. No charges have been filed in the previous case.
