LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Charges have been dismissed against the woman who left a 2-year-old boy in a hot SUV, causing his death.
Jacquelin Thomas admitted to forgetting about La'Vontae Swain and leaving him in the vehicle for more than six hours in April. Swain was found unresponsive in the back seat when Thomas arrived at Gutermuth Elementary School to pick up two other children. An autopsy showed the boy died from hyperthermia.
On Wednesday, a Jefferson County grand jury returned a no true bill, which means they did not find enough evidence to indict Thomas in Swain's death.
Jacqueline Thomas owned Lil Kings and Queens Learning Academy, where Swain was being cared for. The daycare has since been shut down by the state.
