Waco day care operator charged in overdose death

WACO, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas day care operator has been named in a warrant alleging a baby died from an overdose of an over-the-counter drug meant to keep the girl asleep.

Waco police on Thursday announced 49-year-old Marian Bergman Fraser remains at large while facing a charge of injury to a child causing death.

Police say 4-month-old Clara Margurite Felton of Waco died March 4 due to a toxic level of antihistamine in her system. Police believe the girl was given Benadryl to keep the youngster asleep during naptime.

Investigators say the baby was transported to a hospital and declared dead after being found unresponsive in her crib at the Spoiled Rotten day care center.

A number listed for the day care center was not working Thursday.
