Woman charged after boy's death in January
Last Updated: 40 days ago
CARMEL, Ind. - The owner of a day care center where a 5-month-old boy died earlier this year has been found guilty of three charges.
Stacey Cox was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, misdemeanor deception and operating a child care facility without a license.
Cox was charged after Conor Tilson was found unresponsive at her home day care and later died.
A deputy prosecutor said in closing arguments that Tilson suffocated because Cox left him in a broken playpen with an oversized blanket.
A defense attorney had argued that Cox didn't know the playpen was broken.
