Police: Tippett Not First Child Hurt at Day Care

Posted August 28, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Police said another child was injured just one day before 4-month-old Bailey Tippett was beaten to death at Raleigh home day care.

Bailey died while in Tracy Stidham's unlicensed day care last month. Raleigh police said the day before, another baby was injured. They didn't say how the child was hurt.

Stidham was charged with involuntary manslaughter for Bailey's death and a child who was in her care was charged with voluntary manslaughter.
