The girl died in March 2008 after she was partially strapped in a car seat that was too small for her and left unsupervised for more than two hours in a bathroom at the day care. The coroner determined Kailee slipped down and strangled on the strap.
Cummings had testified at her trial that she hadn't meant any harm to Kailee. But under cross-examination, she acknowledged that regulations for licensed day care providers require a child under 18 months should sleep in a crib or a playpen.
