Amy Rogers, a day care worker, was arrested Wednesday in connection to the investigation at Mother Goose.

Last month, the Mississippi State Department of Health ordered the day care to suspend its services following the death of an 8-week-old.

Dr. Thomas Dobbs signed the order and said, “the facility has been determined to constitute a substantial hazard to the health and safety of infants entrusted to and cared for by said facility.”

It’s unclear how the child died.

Rogers is charged with culpable negligence manslaughter.

A Lafayette County judge set her bond at $50,000.
