O’FALLON, Ill. —
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 southwest Illinois.
Now the little boy is dead and his father, Wayne M. Hubert, is accused of involuntary manslaughter. Hubert is accused of placing his son in a sweltering hot car then passing out after drinking at 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.
