Idaho An Idaho man has been charged with second-degree murder after his 11-year-old daughter died walking in the snow after their vehicle got stuck.
Fifty-five-year-old Robert Aragon of Jerome banged his head on the table Monday in court.
Sage Aragon and her 12-year-old brother, Bear, were being driven to their mother’s house in West Magic on Christmas when the truck got stuck in the snow.
Authorities say the father let the children out to walk the 10 miles to their mother’s house. They say he drove back to Jerome after freeing his vehicle.
The worried mother called police. The boy was found that day and survived, and the girl’s frozen body was found the next morning.
Temperatures ranged from 5 degrees below zero to 27 above.
