VESTAVIA HILLS, AL (WBRC) -

The Jefferson County coroner confirmed that a child found locked in a car last month in Vestavia Hills died of hyperthermia, the overheating of the body.

However, we won't know if charges will be filed until next week.

With this report just now coming out, Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr says he will meet with his team and determine whether they will go forward with charges.

It's interesting to note that the coroner's office has ruled the manner of death in this case as an accident.'

But that is different from the legal definition that the DA will consider.

It was back on April 7 that the body of one-year-old Christian Evan Sanders was found inside his father's car.

The car was located at the father's job which is on Columbiana Road in Vestavia.

The coroner says the last time the boy was known to be alive was around 8:30 that morning.

The boy's body was later discovered just after 4:30 that same afternoon.

Had he been inside that entire time?

The coroner says he does not know the father's routine for that day so he could not say.
