A Virginia daycare operator has been accused of killing a 2-year-old girl she was babysitting last summer.

Jessica Cherry was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder in the death of little Kaylee Thomas, who was found unresponsive the babysitter’s Norfolk home on Aug. 18, WAVY reported.

The toddler was taken to a local hospital where she died.

Cherry was arrested and charged back in September with attempted malicious wounding, felony abuse, neglect of a child, and child endangerment.

Prosecutors say she was running the daycare without a license and that cameras recorded crimes against other children a week before Kaylee died, according to WAVY.

Police are looking into the death of a 1-year-old boy who was also found unresponsive in Cherry’s home last January, the outlet reported.

Cherry is being held at the Norfolk City Jail without bond
