WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) - A woman charged in the death of an infant she was caring for at her home as an unlicensed child care provider will not have to serve a prison term.

Middlesex County prosecutors say Marianne McIntyre-Caulfield recently pleaded guilty to child endangerment and was allowed to enter a pretrial program. The 62-year-old Woodbridge woman will be in the program for three years and will be barred from operating a daycare service.

Prosecutors say McIntyre-Caulfield provide child care services for as many as eight children in her home, which they say had “unsanitary conditions.”

She was caring for a 6-month-old boy in December 2015 when she noticed he was in distress and called police. The infant was taken to a hospital but died there a short time later.
