Ex-day care provider gets jail in baby death

HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A former Eagan home day care provider was sentenced to 45 days in jail for placing a baby in an unsafe sleep position that contributed to his death.

Sixty-six-year-old Beverly Greenagel was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in December to second-degree manslaughter.

Dakota County Judge Michael Mayer told Greenagel that 3-month-old Dane Ableidinger died because of her actions.

The boy died on Aug. 18, 2011, after being placed face down on a fluffy blanket — a violation of safe-sleep standards. Greenagel was watching 21 children at the time, more than allowed under state supervision requirements.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports Greenagel agreed to give a presentation to other child care providers on every August 18 for the next 10 years on the need to follow safety guidelines.
