ORLANDO, Fla. — A former Orlando day care worker accused of leaving a 3-year-old boy in a hot van was sentenced to 10 years probation Wednesday afternoon.
Deborah St. Charles pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of manslaughter by culpable negligence in 2019 in the case of Myles Hill.
Investigators said they found the boy dead in a van at the Little Miracles Academy in 2017.
The temperature in the van reached 144 degrees, according to detectives.
St. Charles was supposed to be sentenced in January, but the case was delayed when a new judge took over.
