LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The former owner of a daycare center whose van was involved in a deadly crash that killed an employee has been indicted.

A Jefferson County grand jury returned two indictments against Levonia Lewars on Thursday.

Lewars is facing one count of a fraudulent scheme or plan to obtain fraudulent benefits over $10,000, and one count of theft by deception over $10,000.

The crash of the daycare van on the afternoon of June 12 killed Tiffany Belk, 31, a Heavenly Angels staff member, and sent 14 people, mostly children from the daycare center, to the hospital.

Several days after the crash, Lewars voluntarily shut down the three locations of Heavenly Angels.
