Mother of slain Maine infant sues baby sitter

Baby Death Youngster Charged

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The mother of a 3-month-old Maine girl who died while in the care of a baby sitter has filed a lawsuit against the caretaker and her 12-year-old daughter.

The suit filed by Nicole Greenaway in Kennebec County Superior Court alleges negligence on the part of the Fairfield woman who was entrusted with the care of Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway and seeks unspecified damages.

The baby sitter’s daughter, who was 10 at the time, had faced a manslaughter charge, but pleaded guilty last month to several misdemeanors. Her mother was never charged.

Greenaway’s attorney, Sheldon Tepler, tells the Morning Sentinel the suit is an opportunity to achieve some measure of justice after being torn apart by Brooklyn’s death by suffocation in July 2012.

A lawyer who represented the mother could not be reached.
