Father charged with leaving baby in cold oven

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in western Kentucky say a man
left his infant son in a cold oven, probably for a matter of hours.
The Paducah Sun reported 33-year-old Larry C. Long told police
he had smoked marijuana at a Paducah restaurant where he works and
then came home and drank alcohol.
McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden said the mother of the
5-week-old boy was awakened by his cries Monday morning and found
him the oven. Hayden said the baby was taken to a hospital where
doctors found no injuries.
Long shares the home with the child's mother, 33-year-old Brandy
S. Hatton.
The newspaper reported child welfare officials placed the infant
and his 10- and 14-year-old siblings in the care of one of Hatton's
relatives.
Long is charged with wanton endangerment.
