Babysitter Sentenced In Child's Death

Babysitter Sentenced In Child's Death

A former Omaha child care provider has been given jail time in connection with the death of a 1-year-old boy under her care.

Elizabeth Harding was sentenced Tuesday to 120 days in jail and five years of probation.

A Douglas County District judge found Harding guilty of child neglect resulting in death.

Investigators say Harding was watching Chase Hunter in February 2013 when she put the child to sleep in an unbuckled car seat. Investigators say the seat belt harness wrapped around the boy's neck. He died later at a hospital.
