Daycare Owners Accused of Child Abuse
According to Everything Lubbock, the mother and daughter owners of the day care, 67-year-old Mary Taylor and 31-year-old Sandi Taylor, left two young girls in the back of a daycare van in the heat of the summer.
The two children, Maliyah Jones and Aubrey Loya, both under the age of 2, suffered heat-related illnesses. Loya was left with brain damage while Jones ultimately died of heatstroke.
Defense Team Says it Was an Accident
The Taylors’ defense team argues the two daycare owners were unloading children from a company van but overlooked Jones and Loya who were still strapped into safety seats, resulting in a tragic accident.
Hot Car Deaths on the Rise
According to The Weather Channel, 42 children died in hot car deaths nationwide by September 2018, outpacing the yearly average. The state of Texas accounts for 15% of all hot car child deaths in the U.S., the highest in the nation.
