Posted Updated

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — A Hillsborough woman was charged with operating an illegal day-care center Wednesday, two days after a baby died at her home.

A field agent with the

North Carolina Division of Child Development,

which licenses day-care centers, filed a criminal complaint Tuesday against Pamela R. Adcock, 47, of 2528 Lannie Drive, Hillsborough. The warrant for Adcock's arrest was served Wednesday morning at the Orange County Magistrate's Office.

She was released on a written promise to appear in court.

According to the The North Carolina medical examiner and Orange County Sheriff Lindy Pendergrass, there was no sign of trauma on the 10-week-old baby.

Pendergrass said the medical examiner's final report has not been completed and that more tests are being conducted.

Based on the medical examiner's initial findings, investigators said they believe the baby's death was not the result of neglect or abuse.
