Olathe daycare provider found guilty in child’s death
A Johnson County jury has found an Olathe daycare operator guilty in the death of an 18-month-old child under her care earlier this year.
Jeanette Lawrence was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated endangerment of a child, and a violation of a family day care regulation concerning the death of Ava Patrick.
Lawrence’s sentencing is set for Dec. 17.
Assistant District Attorneys Chris Brown and Ann Henderson tried the case on behalf of the state of Kansas. The case was investigated by the Olathe Police Department.
