crime-sceneAn Omaha woman running an unlicensed home day care has been arrested in connection with the death of a 1-year-old boy.

The Omaha Police Department says 33-year-old Elizabeth Harding was arrested Monday. She faces a charge of child neglect resulting in death.

Chase Hunter was found unconscious Feb. 22 in an unbuckled car seat. Investigators say Harding put the child in the seat to sleep. Chase shuffled himself and the seatbelt harness wrapped around his neck. The boy could not be resuscitated and died.

Harding is jailed at the Douglas County Department of Corrections. Online records do not list an attorney.

    There is a really wonderful state hhs website that shows anyone that has a license for day care, the capacity they are licensed for and if they have any sanctions/probations on their record. I found it by googling “hhs daycare licenses.” I feel horrible for the parents, I cannot imagine a worse feeling in life than losing your child because of leaving them with someone you trusted. :(
