Husband, Wife Avoid Jail Time in Day Care Death

View Comments ()



    A husband and wife from Bristow, Va., avoided jail time in connection to a baby's death at an illegal day care run out of their home.

    A 3-month old girl died at Rocia Chavez's house in March. Chavez pleaded guilty to four felonies as part of a deal. Her 6-year prison sentence is suspended, and she'll be on probation for the next three years.

    Chavez's husband pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.

    His 6-month sentence also was suspended.

    Two women who were watching the baby when she died await trial on child endangerment charges.
