LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Scottsburg woman is facing felony neglect charges in a baby's death.

Indiana State Police said Candace Jones was watching a 6-month-old baby last year in her unlicensed day care. Police said the little girl's mom returned from work and they found the little girl unresponsive during a nap.

Jones called 911, but the baby died. Jones turned herself into the Scott County Jail on Monday.

She's charged with neglect, reckless supervision and operating a child care home without a license.
