    Police say an Arizona man has been arrested and accused of manslaughter after his baby daughter was left alone in a hot car and died.

    Lake Havasu City police say 23-year-old Ty Martin allegedly left the infant unattended in a car for up to an hour Saturday while visiting a friend, who was charged in a marijuana grow operation.
