Cops: Man arrested after 2nd dog in 3 years dies in hot car

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Police say a Connecticut man who left his dog to die in a hot car three years ago has been arrested after another dog died the same way.

Seventy-nine-year-old David Beveridge told police in Middletown that he meant to take the Labradoodle named Jennie to a pet care center around noon Tuesday before going to work. He said he did not remember until around 2:30 p.m. that the dog was still in the car. Temperatures that day were in the 90s.

Police say records at a veterinary hospital show a poodle mix named Charlie died in May 2014 after Beveridge left it in a car.
