Eagan Daycare Provider Sentenced for Infant’s Death
HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A former Eagan home day care provider was sentenced to 45 days in jail for placing a baby in an unsafe sleep position that contributed to his death.
Sixty-six-year-old Beverly Greenagel was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in December to second-degree manslaughter.
Dakota County Judge Michael Mayer told Greenagel that 3-month-old Dane Ableidinger died because of her actions.
The boy died on Aug. 18, 2011, after being placed face down on a fluffy blanket — a violation of safe-sleep standards. Greenagel was watching 21 children at the time, more than allowed under state supervision requirements.
