Day care worker faces charges after boy found dead in van

Charles was arrested on charges of aggravated manslaughter in the death of little Myles Hill, who was left in an "unbearable environment", trapped in the van throughout the day.

"I want to apologize to Myles", Audrey Thornton, the owner of Little Miracles Academy, said through tears.

Hill was found dead Monday night and police say he had been inside the van for almost 12 hours. When she arrived around 9 a.m., she grabbed cleaning supplies from the back of the van before the other children got out and walked with her into the day care. Police say he had been inside the van for almost 12 hours.

The state issued an emergency suspension order Wednesday, for both Little Miracles Academy locations in Orange County.

The family of the toddler who died said she doesn't deserve to leave.

Orlando police on Wednesday conducted a simulation of the conditions they believe the boy suffered before death, the affidavit said.

St. Charles, who was tearful during the hearing Friday, was a child-care personnel/school-readiness employee at the day care. The driver is an employee with the #Little Miracles Academy day care center, which remains closed pending the investigation.

"This facility was previously cited for not keeping proper paperwork".

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Myles' family pay for funeral expenses. "This negligent act was committed with an utter disregard for the safety of the children she is responsible for transporting during the normal course of duties as a daycare service provider and driver of the child care transport vehicle".

Police arrested the driver of a day care van after a three-year-old boy was found dead inside the sweltering vehicle Monday.

Orlando police Chief John Mina said Myles was supposed to have been dropped off Monday morning at another day care center but instead he was taken to the location where his body was later found. A family member told CNN affiliate News 13 that they called the facility on Monday to ask about uniforms, and Myles' attendance never came up.

During the past five years, there have been five, including one in central Florida, the death of Myles Hill earlier this week. In July, the department said the facility's transportation log failed to include multiple required elements, including destination and arrival times and locations.
