Funeral services have been scheduled for a 2-year-old girl who died in a hot car June 20. Visitation for April Knight will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Consolidated Baptist Church, 1625 Russell Cave Road. The funeral will begin at 1 p.m.
April, her grandparents, and some other children had spent the day at Jacobson Park on June 20 and had returned to the grandparents' home on North Upper Street. April's grandparents thought that a younger child was getting her out of the car, but they discovered about two hours later that she had been left inside, police have said.
No decision has been made as to whether to charge the grandparents, Lt. Scott Blakely of the Lexington police said Saturday afternoon.
April lived in Madison, Wis., with her mother, Djauna Knight Edwards, but had been visiting her father, Christopher Bellamy, and his family in Lexington, said her maternal grandmother, Diane Meekins.
Never miss a local story.
She is to be buried in the Lexington Cemetery.
Nationally, 14 children have died in hot vehicles so far this year, according to Jan Null, a California meteorologist who tracks the problem.
