Misdemeanor charges in baby's death


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A Tea woman faces a misdemeanor charge in connection with the death last May of a three month old baby at her daycare in west Sioux Falls.

Captain Paul Niedringhaus with the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s office says 41-year-old Cindy Jo Hanisch is charged with contributing to the abuse or neglect of a child.

Niedringhaus says the incident could be classified as an accident but obviously as a daycare provider Hanisch was ultimately responsible for the care of the children at her daycare.               

Niedringhaus says Hanisch put the boy in a “sleeping position” and was unresponsive when she checked on him.  The child was pronounced dead at the hospital.
