TIPTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Five months after the death of a baby in Tipton County, an arrest has finally been made.

The infant died at an unlicensed daycare while a woman was watching 10 other children. 43-year-old Jessica Moss, allegedly ran that daycare.

She was arrested Tuesday and charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death.

Court documents say Moss placed 2-month-old Connor Collins face down in a crib and left him unsupervised.

She later found Connor unresponsive. 911 was called but the boy could not be saved.

Moss was also arrested back in August for stealing thousands of dollars from a Tipton County animal organization. She is scheduled for a pretrial release hearing on Monday.
