Baby died at illegal day care tolerated by state; workers criminally charged

A child care regulator, a day care operator with whom she was friends and two other women were quietly indicted last month on criminal charges arising from the May 15 death of Cyrus Macioroski.

Exactly how the baby died has not been made public, but the indictments say day care operator Rochelle R. Jones and the other two women left Cyrus, then 4 months old, unattended for "a period of time that was likely to endanger (his) health and welfare."
