Puerto Rico doctor found guilty in son`s death

Police say Dr Cynthia Galinaltis accidentally left her toddler in a hot car for several hours.

San Juan: A Puerto Rico doctor has been found guilty of negligent homicide in the death of her toddler whom police say she accidentally left in a hot car for several hours.

Dr Cynthia Galinaltis is scheduled to be sentenced on July 02.

It is unclear if her attorneys plan to appeal the judge`s decision that was issued on Friday.

Police said Galinaltis apparently forgot to drop the boy off at daycare on her way to work in April 2011. Local media have said her husband usually took the child to the centre.

Authorities said the 21-month-old boy died from hyperthermia.
