    TX - Clara Felton, 4 mos, dies of drug OD, Waco, 4 March 2013

    Disgusting!!!

    Just goes to show that this can happen to anyone's baby/child anywhere. This was the 4 month old granddaughter of a local judge. Why this daycare has been allowed to stay open is beyond imagination.

    Waco daycare owner Marian Bergman Fraser, 49, who was named in an arrest warrant stemming from the death of the 4-month-old granddaughter of McLennan County Judge Scott Felton, surrendered to police Thursday morning and later was released on bond.

    Fraser was charged with injury to a child (causing death).

    She was released at around noon Thursday after posting a $25,000 bond.

    On April 30 the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services cited the daycare for administering medication without authorization.

    “During the inspection it was found a caregiver was administering over the counter medication to a child in care without having the written authorization from the parent,” the department’s child care information website said.

    The website said the deficiency was corrected before a May 15 deadline.

    This was less than 2 months after beautiful baby Clara died but before autopsy toxicology tests were completed at the end of May!

    Additional charges for other children that have been given the antihistamine without parental consent or instruction.

    Clara's parents had never given and her an antihistamine, and if they had the effects would have happened much earlier that morning.

    Fraser told police she had a sleep schedule for the kids for two and a half to three hours. You have up to twelve kids you're watching and you're going to get them all to sleep for over two hours?

    Something I wonder about is if these little ones slept all night long and aren't nappers then what? You're forcing them by 11:30 to nap for over two hours?

    Just a little doll, Clara.

    A Waco couple has filed a lawsuit against the owner of a local home daycare who’s charged in the overdose death of a 4-month-old girl who authorities say was given a dose of an over-the-counter antihistamine so she’d sleep at nap time. Perry and Lauren Felton filed the lawsuit in McLennan County’s 170th District Court against Spoiled Rotten Day Care and its owner, Marian Fraser.

    Fraser, 41, is under indictment for murder, injury to a child causing serious bodily injury and 13 counts of endangering a child... After the girl’s death, the parents of the 10 infants had hair samples tested for diphenhydramine, a source close to the investigation said...

    He said the suit was filed because the statute of limitations runs out on March 4, two years after the infant’s death. "We were hoping the criminal trial would run its course first, but it hasn't,” said Zollie Steakley, lawyer representing the Feltons Monday. "We're really suing to raise awareness and try to make sure this doesn't happen to any other family," he said. “There is nothing to be had financially from the suit.”

    From May:

    http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/P...305007971.html

    A 19th District Court jury decided on a 50-year sentence Tuesday afternoon for a former Waco daycare owner found guilty of murder last week in the death of an infant in her care who died of an antihistamine overdose.

    Marian Fraser, 51, must serve half the sentence before she’s eligible for parole.

    Appeals court rules day care owner convicted of murder deserves new trial

    http://www.wacotrib.com/news/courts_...649cae6f5.html

    The Seventh Court of Appeals in Amarillo ordered a new trial Friday for a former Waco day care owner who was sentenced to 50 years in prison in a fatal March 2013 Benadryl overdose death of a baby in her care.

    Marian Fraser, now 53, was convicted of murder in 2015 in the death of Clara Felton.

    On Friday, the appeals court awarded her a new trial. According to the court’s opinion, the state’s case could have led to Fraser being convicted of murder based on a death that resulted from reckless or criminally negligent conduct, rather than intentional conduct, as should have been required for a murder conviction.
