DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A second worker at a South Florida day care has been charged in the death of a toddler who was left in a van all day in August.
Delray Beach police charged 45-year-old Petra Rodriguez-Perez on Tuesday with aggravated manslaughter of a child. She was the director of Katie's Kids Learning Center, which has since closed.
Authorities say 2-year-old Haile Brockington was left in the van on Aug. 5 for more than seven hours. Another worker at the center, 31-year-old Amanda Inman, was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child in August.
The center shut down after a state agency revoked more than $200,000 in funding. The center owners voluntarily relinquished their license in September.
