JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - The owner of a metro Atlanta daycare and her daughter have been sentenced in the death of a 2-year-old girl who was left unattended in a hot van.

WSB-TV (https://bit.ly/1jnQJwk ) reported Tuesday that Marlo Fallings was sentenced to 90 days and her daughter, Quantabia Hopkins, a teacher at Marlo’s Magnificent Daycare has been sentenced to 30 days.

Prosecutors have said Jazmin Green was left in a van for about three hours in June of 2011 after a trip to Chuck E. Cheese. Authorities have said temperatures were in the 90s that day.

Green’s mother, April McAllister, says she’s upset with the women’s sentences and called their terms an injustice.

Fallings and Hopkins were initially charged with felony murder but were convicted of lesser charges, including reckless conduct and involuntary manslaughter.
