Bay County sheriff's investigators were expected to make one arrest Monday in the case of a child left inside a hot daycare bus for hours. What wasn't expected was two other arrests.

Forty-seven-year-old Kenneth Earl Weaver of Callaway was arrested Monday, but sheriff's officials also arrested another person in connection with the incident. That suspect's name has not been released, and investigators say they'll make a third arrest by the end of the day.

All three people are allegedly connected to an incident that happened on Friday, September 1. Five-year-old Keaire Kamau was locked in a bus at the Child Care Network in Callaway. Weaver, the driver, reportedly says he forgot to check the bus after dropping off the kids.

Kamau's mother says she found the boy in his underwear and shirt. She says the child was unable to walk. A deputy checked the temperature on the bus and it registered 135 degrees.

Weaver is facing child neglect charges, but could face addition charges. We'll let you know about the other suspects as soon as that information is available.
