Police say 4-month-old dies at in-home daycare in Stillwater

The Associated Press and The Stillwater News Press, (http://www.stwnewspress.com) - February 14, 2018 4:31 pm

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Police in Stillwater say a 4-month-old died after apparently being found not breathing at an unlicensed, in-home daycare.
Lt. Jeff Watts says in a news release that police were called to the home Monday morning and the infant was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Watts says the daycare provider told officers the child was put down for a nap, then was found about an hour later not breathing.
Watts said the infant’s body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
The name of the daycare provider and the number of children in the home was not released, but Oklahoma State Department of Human Services spokeswoman Casey White told the Stillwater News Press that the home is not licensed.
