O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) -- Neighbors remember Nathan as a happy, energetic toddler who could be seen laughing and playing with his 32-year-old father outside their home along Joy Drive in the southwest Illinois community of O'Fallon.
Now, the little boy is dead -- and his father, Wayne M. Hubert is accused of involuntary manslaughter after allegedly placing his 23-month-old son in a sweltering hot car, then passing out after drinking inside their O'Fallon home.
Hubert was released from the St. Clair County Jail on Saturday afternoon after posting a $25,000 bond, which is 10 percent of his $250,000 bail, according to the county sheriff's office.
Neighbors told the Belleville News-Democrat that Hubert was a loving father.
