NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A woman is facing possibly years in prison after being convicted of criminal charges in the death of a 5-month-old boy at a suburban Indianapolis day care.

A Hamilton County jury found Kirsten Phillips of Avon guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide charges in the January 2013 death of Conor Tilson at an unlicensed day care in Carmel. Authorities say Conor was placed in a broken crib in a room with no adults and no baby monitor.

Phillips faces two years to eight years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

The Indianapolis Star reports Phillips’ mother, Stacey Cox, was convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter and operating a child care without a license. WRTV reports Cox and Phillips have agreed to lifetime bans on providing child care.
