Parker day care provider arrested in connection with death of 3-month-old baby

A day care provider in Parker was arrested Tuesday in connection with the death of a 3-month-old baby that occurred nearly two months ago.

Amanda Anderson, 34, was taken into custody at 4:20 p.m. following an investigation into the death of the 3-month-old child, who was pronounced dead at a hospital on Aug. 26.

Deputies were responding to a call of medical assist at 14166 Lexington Drive when they were told that the South Metro Fire Authority was transporting the unconscious child to a hospital.

The 3-month-old was under the care and supervision of Anderson, who had been issued five cease-and-desist orders through the state’s Department of Human Services prior to the incident in August and two additional cease-and-desist orders since, according to a news release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office issued a warrant for her arrest Tuesday for child abuse resulting in death, a class 2 felony. She was taken into custody without incident, the release stated.
