Day care providers in Minnesota and other States have a duty to properly supervise children in their case. In Bloomington, Minnesota, a jury recently returned a guilty verdict in a case that charged the day care provider (Doris Meeks – age 48) and her daughter (Harmony Newman – age 22) with second degree manslaughter while committing child neglect. A 22 month old boy under the care of the day care center died as a result of asphyxiation. It was reported that the child was buckled into a car seat in a playpen.
