Daycare Provider Charged In Connection With Boy's Death

Mattydale, N.Y. - A Mattydale daycare provider has been arrested in connection with a boy's death.

Officials say 24-year-old Jessica Sims was babysitting 23-month-old Lennox Santiago at her apartment at Orchard Estates last July when she called 911 and said the child fell out of a chair and hit his head. Santiago was rushed to the hospital but died days later.

Police say Sims kept changing her story about how the child got hurt before eventually admitting she caused his head to hit a coffee table.

She's been arraigned on manslaughter charges and is due in court tomorrow.
