Verdicts handed down in Jonesboro day care death

Posted: Updated:
CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -

Verdicts were handed down Friday in the death of two-year-old Jazmin Green. Green died in June of 2011 after daycare providers left her inside a van for hours on a hot summer day.

Before the verdict was read, prosecutors reminded jurors Green would have been 5-years-old this Easter.

Daycare owner Marlo Fallings was convicted of reckless conduct. Her daughter, Quantabia Hopkins, was found guilty on three charges, including involuntary manslaughter, contributing to the deprivation of a minor and reckless conduct.

Both were acquitted of felony murder charges. Sentencing is scheduled for May 2.
