OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former Omaha child care provider accused of abusing a 4-year-old girl in her care has pleaded no contest.

Television station WOWT reports that 59-year-old Lynn Rowe entered the plea Tuesday to the child abuse charge in Douglas County District Court. She faces up to three years in prison when she’s sentenced in January.

Police say the girl’s parents reported April 3 that Rowe had abused their daughter while the girl was at Rowe’s day care. Officials say the report was made after a worker at the day care recorded Rowe hitting the girl.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services shut down Lynn’s Learning Center shortly after Rowe’s arrest in April in Missouri Valley, Iowa.
