Prosecutor: Kansas foster father high on marijuana when he left 10-month-old girl in hot car

Prosecutors say a Kansas foster father was high on marijuana when he left a 10-month-old girl in a hot car, where she died.

The details of the case surfaced during a bond hearing Friday for Seth Jackson. He's charged with first-degree murder in the July 24 death.

Police say the girl was in the sweltering car for more than two hours in Wichita, where temperatures were 90 degrees.

KWCH reported (http://bit.ly/1nZRP4Y) that Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett cited the marijuana use in court as the reason for raising Jackson's bond to $250,000.

Bennett told the court Jackson had gone to his drug dealer's house and bought marijuana. Prosecutors believe he then intended to smoke marijuana. But they have said there's nothing to indicate the girl's death was intentional
