No criminal charges filed in Davison Co. daycare death
The South Dakota Attorney General says the tragic death of an infant at a Davison County daycare won't result in criminal charges.
On June 19, 3-month-old Brooklyn Howard, the daughter of Amy Ruml and Donny Howard, died at a rural Davison County daycare. South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says a young child in the daycare contributed to the death of the infant.
Sara Rabern with the Attorney General's office says due to the sensitive nature of the case and the age of the child involved, the Attorney General's office will not release a cause of death or any information on the child accused of causing the baby's death.
The Mitchell Police Department, Davison County Sheriff's Office and Division of Criminal Investigation assisted in the case.
Attorney General Marty Jackley sends his condolences to the family of the deceased, who were cleared of any culpability at the outset and have cooperated throughout the investigation.
