A daycare worker is facing charges, accused in the death of one of the children she was caring for.
According to court records, Wendy Young, 49, is facing charges tied to the child's death in Iowa City in October of last year.
Investigators say Young was caring for children between seven months and three years old; they say she admitted to drinking 10-12 cans of beer before going to care for the kids. One of the children, a 7-month-old baby was found unresponsive and later died at the hospital. Investigators say Young still had alcohol in her system 8 hours after she started watching children.
