LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A former daycare owner charged with fraud may file for bankruptcy.

WAVE 3 learned former Heavenly Angels daycare owner, LaVonia Lewars, filed documents with her intentions to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

In the documents, Lewars asks the court for liquidation of more than $616,000 in liabilities.

Lewars shut down her three Heavenly Angels locations after one of her daycare vans crashed on June 12, 2012, killing one of her employees and sending 14 children to the hospital.

Soon after the crash, the state indicted Lewars, accusing her of 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.
