Mitchell day care death sparks civil lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The parents of a 3-month-old girl who died at an in-home day care in rural Mitchell are suing the owner of the day care.

Parents Amy Ruml and Donald Howard claim that Lacey Tebay was negligent in the death of Brooklyn Howard, who the parents say died after being attacked by another child at the day care. The parents want a jury to determine damages.

Authorities decided not to file any criminal charges in the June 19th death. Tebay has until the end of the month to file a response to the civil lawsuit.
