Texas daycare owner charged in overdose death of 4-month-old

Waco authorities have issued a warrant for a local daycare owner after a child died in under her supervision earlier this year.

Back on March 4, 2013, Waco Police Department officers were called to Providence Hospital on a child death. After arriving, police learned 4-month-old Clara Margurite Felton, of Waco, had been taken there by ambulance when workers at the Spoiled Rotten Daycare found the baby unconscious and not breathing around 2:50 p.m.

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Kristi DeCluitt pronounced the child dead and ordered an autopsy. The baby was sent to Dallas where results showed the girl had died from a "Toxic Level" of Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) in her system.

A warrant was issued for the daycare owner, Marian Bergman Fraser, 49, by Judge Taylor for injury to a child causing death, a 1st degree felony.

Fraser is expected to turn herself in sometime Thursday.
