A Newton man charged with recklessly killing his girlfriend’s 18-month-old daughter, who was found dead after being left alone to nap in a car seat, has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will face a jury trial on Aug. 25.

Jason M. Bugner, 21, is charged with a count of involuntary manslaughter in the Aug. 30, 2012, death of Farrah Pendland. According to an amended autopsy report dated September 2013, the girl died by strangulation after she was fastened into a car seat by only its top buckles and placed on the edge of a futon mattress while Bugner visited with a friend in another room.

When he checked on her later, Bugner “found the car seat partially overturned” and the toddler “suspended with the car seat strap around her neck,” according to the amended autopsy report.

A remaining capital murder conviction for each man was upheld by the court, but the death sentence connected to it was vacated after a 6-1 majority said the district court judge who presided over the brothers’ trial – the late Paul W. Clark – was in error when he refused to hold separate sentencing proceedings for the men.

Justice Nancy Mortiz disagreed with the decision, saying that separate hearings would not have influenced the outcome because witness testimony, the “unusually egregious facts” of the case and evidence against the Carr brothers was so strong.
