STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford home day care owner Nydia Carrillo, who is being investigated in connection with a baby's death that was ruled a homicide , has given up her home daycare license, the Stamford Advocate reported.
Days after the baby died the owner's license was suspended, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Rather than argue the suspension in court as planned, Carillo's lawyer told the Stamford Advocate the focus now is the "criminal investigation."
Stamford Police have launched a criminal investigation into the death of a 2-month-old New Canaan baby after the State's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Bella Redondo died of blunt force trauma to the head, police said.
Stamford Emergency Medical Service responded to Little Bears Beginnings Daycare at 48 Wardwell St. in Stamford at 3:12 p.m. Tuesday, July 12 on a report of a baby who was having trouble breathing, police said.
"It was evident at this time there was some evidence of head trauma in addition to the breathing issues," Stamford Police said in a statement.
At Stamford Hospital, doctors "valiantly tried to save Bella but to no avail," police said. At about 6:20 p.m., Bella was pronounced dead and police were notified.
Police said this remains an active investigation.
