CLERMONT, Ga. (AP) - The owner and site director of a Clermont daycare center have been arrested, bringing to three the number of people facing charges after authorities say a child was burned there.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office on Monday apprehended Discovering Basics owner Minnie “Sue” Dupree and site director Tara Miller both of Gainesville.

The Times reports (https://bit.ly/1nA48k1) that 66-year-old Dupree was charged with influencing testimony. The 40-year-old Miller was charged with second-degree child cruelty. Both women were to appear before a magistrate judge Tuesday afternoon. It wasn’t known whether they have attorneys.
