The daycare worker who allegedly left an 13-month old infant inside a hot car now faces criminal charges.
It happened on Friday, September 2, kicking off the long Labor Day weekend. Temperatures hit the 90s by 1:30 in the afternoon, when the body of little Aolani McCray was discovered alone, inside an SUV, parked on Russell Avenue.
She'd been inside for four hours, during the hottest time of day, and died from the heat according to the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office.
42-year old Lisa Scott of Hayden Avenue, the daycare worker charged with McCray's care, is now charged with Reckless Homicide and Felony Child Endangering.
Police say Scott had five children in the SUV but didn't retrieve all when parking at a Russell Avenue daycare. Scott turned herself in to police accompanied by her lawyer; she's been booked in the Summit County Jail.
