CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — A judge sentenced a Carmel day care worker to five years on Tuesday.

Last month a Hamilton County jury convicted Kirsten Phillips. She was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide.

Authorities say she is partly responsible for 5-month-old Conor Tilson’s death at an unlicensed day care last year.

Authorities say the boy was placed in a broken crib in a room with no adults and no baby monitor. Investigators say Phillips found the boy not breathing.

Phillips will split her sentence between the Department of Correction, Community Corrections and probation.
