Waco authorities have arrested a local daycare owner after a child died in under her supervision earlier this year.

Marian Bergman Fraser, 49, was arrested Thursday morning on charges of injury to a child causing death.

Back on March 4, 2013, Waco Police Department officers were called to Providence Hospital on a child death. After arriving, police learned 4-month-old Clara Margurite Felton, of Waco, had been taken there by ambulance when workers at the Spoiled Rotten Daycare found the baby unconscious and not breathing around 2:50 p.m.

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Kristi DeCluitt pronounced the child dead and ordered an autopsy. The baby was sent to Dallas where results showed the girl had died from a "Toxic Level" of Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) in her system.

Fraser was booked into the McLennan County Jail and bond has not yet been set.
