LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville daycare connected to the death of a toddler found in a van will stay closed.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services has revoked the license of Lil Kings and Queens Academy.

The agency says the daycare's appeal of its emergency license suspension was not filed quickly enough. The state immediately closed Lil Kings and Queens after authorities said 2-year-old LaVontae Swain had been left in the daycare's van for six hours.

The daycare's owner, 70-year-old Jacquelin Thomas has been arrested in connection with his death.
