Lori Conley was arraigned Saturday in Franklin County Municipal Court and jailed, pending her release on bond. Court records don’t name an attorney for her.
Authorities say the 43-year-old Conley was baby-sitting eight toddlers and infants at her Reynoldsburg, Ohio, home when she found Haddix Mulkey unresponsive May 13. He died at a Columbus hospital.
Police say the charges were delayed until toxicology tests confirmed the baby received a fatal dose of the over-the-counter allergy drug.
