Police in Fairfield, Maine have charged a 10-year-old girl with manslaughter. Police say the 10-year-old contributed to the death of a 3-month-old infant named Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway. The 10-year-old, who has not been named due to privacy laws, was implicated after her mother, Amanda Lynn Huard, called police early morning on July 8 to report that baby Brooklyn was not breathing. Huard was babysitting Brooklyn and her sister overnight.
The infant’s mother, Nicole Greenaway, said that she left her baby with a friend and co-worker that night, 30-year-old Amanda Huard. Huard says she put Brooklyn to bed on July 7 and the next morning, she checked on the baby and found her unresponsive. Both women are medical assistants according to their Facebook pages.
Manslaughter charges against the 10-year-old were announced today after police concluded the death of the infant was a homicide. Cause of death has not yet been released.
The 10-year-old will be one of the youngest people to be charged with manslaughter in the history of Maine.
On Greenaway’s Facebook page, a commenter mentioned that the babysitter had her children taken away “because of what happened”.
Huard declared the situation a “nightmare”. She said her daughter “Kelli” found the infant the next morning.
