The Dothan Eagle (http://bit.ly/GPR8RZ ) reports that jurors found 36-year-old Christopher Shawn Aldridge of Dothan innocent on Thursday.
Aldridge and 24-year-old Stephanie Coogle were arrested last June on felony manslaughter charges in the death of their 4-year-old son, Shawn Aldridge. Authorities say the boy died of heat exhaustion after being left in a Ford Explorer for about nine hours.
Aldridge's attorney calls the boy's death a "tragic accident." He says his client thought his son was with Coogle, the child's mother.
Coogle still awaits trial.
