Minn. woman pleads guilty in day care death

December 2, 2013
Associated Press

HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota day care provider has pleaded guilty to felony manslaughter in the death of a baby in her care.

Sixty-six-year-old Beverly Greenagel entered her plea in Dakota County Monday. Greenagel could spend as much as a month in jail under a plea agreement.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1eIqOel ) reports Greenagel was the sole licensed child care provider at her house in Eagan on the day in August 2011 that 3-month-old Dane Ableidinger died while napping in a bedroom.

Investigators concluded that he had been face down on a fluffy blanket on the floor —a violation of safe-sleep guidelines — and suffocated. His official cause of death is listed as "probable positional asphyxia."

The case was set to go to trial next week. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 10.
