Officials said that on April 16, the couple left their toddler in their SUV in the front of their Tampa apartment for about eight hours.

Deputies said last month that the family -- which also includes three young daughters -- came home about 4 a.m. from visiting relatives. The parents took their three daughters inside.

Rosario thought Lopez-Alvarez brought their son in, too. Lopez-Alvarez thought Rosario had. But the boy remained outside.

The toddler was hospitalized, but released days later.

Deputies said the toddler and his sisters are now in the state custody.
