Iowa Parents Sue Woman Over Baby's Death



Bookmark and Share

The parents of a 6-month-old boy who died last year are suing the baby's day care provider.
    
Jeremiah and Courtney Pottebaum, of Bronson, filed the lawsuit Thursday in Woodbury County District Court. The lawsuit accuses Rina Sanchez of negligence in the actions that led to Peyton Pottebaum's death on Jan. 21, 2012.

The lawsuit says violent shaking caused a skull fracture that killed the baby. While someone other than Sanchez may have shaken the baby, the lawsuit says, she is ultimately responsible because the baby was in her care when he was injured.
    
The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount for various damages, including punitive damages and emotional distress.
    
No criminal charges have been filed. Sanchez could not be reached Saturday for comment.
