A northwest Indiana daycare worker is charged in connection with the death of an infant who was in her care. Deborah Parlock, 53, of Chesterton, is charged with battery resulting in the death of a person under the age of 14.

Nicholas Munden, 6 months, died after he was found unresponsive in Parlock's home day care facility last September. The medical examiner ruled that the infant died from blunt force trauma.

Parlock was operating her daycare without a license.

At the time of the baby's death, she was caring for 8 children.
