Ohio Child Dies in Hot Car

Police in Ohio release a videotape of an assistant principal, hours after her toddler's death.

A grieving Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby spoke with an officer about her remorse for leaving her child in a sweltering SUV.

"Good mothers don't do this. I don't know how to live without my kids. They are my life", says Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby.

The mother says a break in her routine caused her to forget her 2-year-old daughter was in the car while she went to work at a middle school in Cincinnati.

Prosecutors decided not to file any charges.

    Why would she not be charged? It is ashame that a mother could forget her child in a hot car and not be charged with it.

    How can you forget your child in the car? Surely to goodness she had to get something out of her vehicle, how could she not see the carseat, or her child, the child might have been sleeping, but that's no excuse. When you have a two year old, there really is no routine. Most of the time they have their own, and the mother is in no trouble what so ever, what is it because she is a teacher? Out of all people she should no better!

    She was right when saying "Good mothers don't do this" so she showed her gross incompetence at being a parent for even forgetting about or leaving child in vehicle. There is NO Excuse for even forgetting child was in vehicle. Nobody should have sympathy for her and prosecutors should be disbarred from legal profession for not filing charges against this murderer. She should be charged.
