Brenda, news 13's report says the babys mother said the ten year old is the daughter of the babysitter. I guess that answers that question
From some comments I just read, it seems some people are saying the girl was not the babysitter. I dont know if the have personal knowledge of it but I read the article three times and still dont see where it leads one way or the other.
Unfortunately for this little girl, she didn't have to mean to do it. Thats why its manslaughter and not murder. Manslaughter only requires that she acted "recklessly or with criminal negligence." I don't want to jump the gun and say much until the whole storey is out but if the baby was left alone with a ten year old, especially for the night, then the parents of the baby are the ones that acted with negligence. I have a daughter that is almost ten and she is extremely bright but I would not put the responsibilty of an infant on her. There are a lot of adults that cant hanle the stress ofa baby never mind a ten year old.
