A ruthless carjacker shot dead a Texas father and then left his victim’s 2-year-old son to die in the stolen SUV in temperatures of 34 degrees, police officers say.

Bolanle Fadairo, 38, has been charged with two counts of murder for shooting his father Tuesday afternoon and then abandoning the child, who was found dead more than five hours later, Houston police said Thursday.

The carjacker killer appears to have met his 38-year-old father – relatives named Michael Essien, who took in another child just a week ago – and shot him after an argument, Deputy Police Chief Larry Satterwhite.

Fadairo then fled at 1:46 p.m. in his victim’s Chevrolet Traverse with the 2-year-old boy inside, Satterwhite said.

But police had no idea until the boy’s mother called emergency services nearly five hours later to report the missing husband and son, the boss said.

“We didn’t know about the baby until she called at 6:36 p.m.,” she said.

The “specific information” he provided about the stolen SUV helped officers quickly locate it where it was left.

“Unfortunately it was too late. The child had passed in the car,” Satterwhite said of the child, identified by the family as Micah Essien.

Cause of death

The cause of death has not yet been confirmed, the police chief said, as he speculated it could be “something like heat stroke”. Temperatures hit 94 degrees this afternoon in Houston.

Satterwhite said officers previously searched for the stolen vehicle but were foiled by “very vague information” about it before the victim’s wife and mother called emergency services.

“No one wants more than I do that we had more [information] at the time and that we could have found that baby in time,” the police chief said.

Fadairo was arrested Wednesday morning after police released surveillance footage of the killer walking through a gas station just before the double murder.

Satterwhite asked Houston to “pray for this family,” saying, “A mother has lost her husband and 2-year-old child.”

Essien also left behind two other children, including a baby born just a week ago, relatives told KHOU.

The grieving widow “is holding on,” a cousin, Etimbuk Isaiah, told the outlet.

“It’s difficult to deal with at the moment and so tragic because nobody wakes up with the intention of dying.”

The deceased’s sister, Jessie Okon, sobbed to reporters at the loss of her “peaceful” brother and “always cheerful” nephew.

“Tell Houston, tell the world I want my grandson back. He is only 2 years old. He can’t hurt a fly,” he said of little Micah.

As for the murderer, he said: “Especially for my nephew, God will give him his reward.
