NEWS GRAPHIC 8It was an evening of inconsolable mourning as 17 month old Jaedon Cudjoe was laid to rest.

The casket bearing the toddler’s body spent an hour at the family’s home in Penal then was taken to St Dominic’s Roman Catholic Church; it was then buried at the Batchiya Public Cemetery.

Baby Cudjoe died from hyperthermia after he was forgotten in the back seat of his grandfather’s car on Tuesday.

The grandfather, Winston Cudjoe, has since been charged with manslaughter and was released on $100,000 dollars bail on Friday night.
He wept inconsolably as he gazed upon the coffin bearing the child’s body at the final farewell yesterday.

Cudjoe is expected to appear in Siparia Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
