Police: Child dies in daycare

STILLWATER (AP)  Police in Stillwater say a 4-month-old died after apparently being found not breathing at an unlicensed, in-home daycare.

Lt. Jeff Watts says in a news release that police were called to the home Monday morning and the infant was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Watts says the daycare provider told officers the child was put down for a nap, then was found about an hour later not breathing.

Watts said the infant's body was sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
