NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A 62-year-old New Jersey woman has been charged with endangerment after a 6-month-old boy died while in her care.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey says Marianne McIntire-Caulfield faces one count of child endangerment.

McIntire-Caulfield was charged Tuesday and surrendered at police headquarters in Woodbridge on Wednesday. Bail was set at $100,000.

Carey says an investigation determined McIntire-Caulfield was babysitting as many as eight infants in her home in Iselin. Investigators say the home had unsanitary conditions.

She called police on the afternoon of Dec. 1 when she noticed the boy was in distress. He died shortly thereafter.

Autopsy results haven’t been released pending results of toxicological testing.

It wasn’t immediately known if McIntire-Caulfield had retained an attorney who could comment on the charges.
