DES MOINES, Iowa  --  On Friday, a judge found a Des Moines father not guilty in the death of his son.

Lance Williams left his 6-month-old child in a hot car last June and faced charges of child endangerment, neglect, and abandonment. However, a judge says the state failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Williams acted in either a knowing or reckless manner.
