PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man has pleaded not guilty to murder and abuse charges stemming from the September death of his 1-year-old son. The boy had been left in a hot car while the father went to work.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman says Brokale Lytte Marques entered his plea Wednesday.

Marques was arrested after his son was found at a Scottsdale mall parking lot in a lethargic state.

Authorities say Marques told investigators he left the baby in a car seat because he was unable to find a sitter.

Marques also told investigators he initially left the vehicle running and the air conditioning on, but later turned it off.

The boy died later at a hospital.
