Jeanette Lawrence guilty of involuntary manslaughter of 18-month-old Ava Patrick


L. Lawrence can apparently write a good book about running a daycare. Actually running one, that’s a different story.

A Johnson County jury found Lawrence guilty on Wednesday of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated endangerment of a child, and a violation of a family day care regulation in the death of 18-month-old Ava Patrick.

Lawrence was babysitting Patrick at the Olathe home where she ran her daycare in April 2009. But something went horribly wrong.
