WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont prosecutor says he doesn’t plan to file criminal charges in the death of a toddler who drowned at a Waterbury day care.

Three-year-old Parker Berry wandered into a brook near the facility in February.

Police have said the boy was missing when the family came to pick him up at the Elephant in the Field day care.

He was found in the brook and died the next day.

Washington County State’s Attorney Scott Williams said Monday that “none of the actions or inactions of adults involved with this terribly sad incident qualify as demonstrating a criminal mental state, including criminal recklessness or negligence.”
