Daycare Operator Charged In B.C. Infant's Death

The operator of a Coquitlam, B.C., daycare has been charged in connection with the sudden death of an infant last year.

A one-year-old boy died at Rattle-N-Roll, a home daycare in the 1300 block of Shaughnessy Street, in January 2011.

At a news conference Monday, police said Maria McFerran has been charged with criminal negligence causing death, obstruction of justice and failure to provide necessities of life.
