Worker arrested in baby's death


QUEBEC—A Quebec home daycare worker was charged yesterday with manslaughter in the death of a 10-month-old girl last year.

Police arrested 37-year-old Kathy Jomphe and she appeared in court on one count of manslaughter.

Police opened a probe on May 1, 2018, after a young girl was found unconscious in a home daycare in Ste-Brigitte-de-Laval,.

She died in hospital the following evening.

Sgt. Louis-Philippe Bibeau says Jomphe worked at the daycare when the child was injured.

An autopsy was performed on the young girl to determine the cause of the death, which ultimately led to the arrest.
