GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — A woman who operates a child-care home in Georgetown bounded out of the Williamson County Jail Wednesday morning.
Holly Harrison, 37, is charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence in connection with the death of a five-month-old baby boy. On Tuesday, authorities issued two felony arrest warrants for Harrison, 37, the operator of All About Kids day care. She was booked into the Williamson County Jail on Tuesday afternoon.
A spokesperson for Texas Child Care Licensing says the baby, named Brody, died while at the day care, which is a registered child-care home, on Jan. 13. State records indicate the provider registered to be a child-care home in October 2015 after being cited for not having a permit in August 2015.
The child’s official cause of death is still being investigated but the Williamson County Assistant District Attorney says the baby may have choked on a mitten.
Child Care Licensing, a division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, says the day care voluntarily stopped caring for children while the investigation is ongoing. Williamson County Sheriff’s Department initially handled the call.
