HAMILTON COUNTY — Former home day care providers Daniel and Saundra Wahl have been ordered to pay $22,353.72 in restitution following the death of a toddler in their care.
Anthony DiRienzo, who was 20-months-old, was found wedged in a broken baby gate at the home day care in June 2013.
Prosecutors said the Wahls failed to fix the gate and did not properly supervise the child.
A Hamilton County judge sentenced the Wahls on Tuesday to pay restitution, as well as time-served.
The couple served nine months in prison in 2014 and 2015 following their 2014 convictions for involuntary manslaughter, records show.
The Wahls received a new trial following a decision by the Indiana Supreme Court to overturn their 2014 convictions after the Wahls claimed their trial was tainted by juror misconduct.
The couple operated the Home Away From Home day care in Fortville.
The toddler’s family has filed a wrongful death suit against the Wahls and that lawsuit is still pending.
