GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The father of a baby who died after being left in the back seat of the family car has been charged in connection with the child's death.

Jose Stanlin Fichack, 31, of Whitsett, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, according to Guilford County's chief assistant district attorney Howard Neumann.

The 3-month-old boy, Nicholas, was found unresponsive inside a car parked outside  a Greensboro shopping center on Oct. 3.

The baby was strapped in a car seat, however no one was with the child.

Officials say Fichack was going to work and left his son in the van.

A passerby called 911 when Nicholas was found around 1 p.m.

Emergency personnel continued CPR while transporting the infant to Moses Cone Hospital.

The infant was pronounced dead at the hospital from heat stroke.

Authorities say the warrant for Fichack's arrest was issued Tuesday and that he turned himself in Thursday.

The mother will not be charged.

Fichack's first court appearance will be Dec. 2 in district court. He was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.

    Well Mr Ryan please give us the right info….however did THEY forget the baby was in the car before he went to work…something smells funny about this story

    They did not say he forgot the child. They said he left the child there and went to work. There was no forgetting anything. He was well aware the baby was there.

      Just trying to figure out why he’s not being charged with murder….left and forgot makes a big difference and he should be charged with first degree murder for leaving a baby in the car and she should be charged with involuntary manslaughter cause she HAD to know he was on his way to work

    Never happened to me. Matter of fact, the first day of child care i took an hour off work to go and check on my new born because i just had to make sure all is ok. Me, Dad, was telling my wife to hold tight,be careful etc;. Can’t imagine how you forget if your focused. My only concern was my child, all else was nothing. Anyway, i am sure they are hurt.
