According to WTTG, on Tuesday, Kia Divband, the owner of that facility, was charged with the infant's murder.

Miller "Millie" Lilliston was under his watch on April 19 when she began vomiting. The girl was rushed to the hospital, but died in the following days.

At the hearing, the prosecutor presented with a long list of injuries, notes WRC.

Those included broken ribs, limb fractures, lacerations, and bruises.

A postmortem examination found blunt-force damage done to her body was the cause of death.

It was also noted that evidence of ongoing abuse was discovered.

Divband's attorney says the case is still in the investigative stage, and his client, "...looks forward to having his day in court and defending himself," reports WTTG.

The bond for the daycare center owner was set at $2 million.
