Charges dismissed against Monticello daycare workers


MONTICELLO, Ky. (WTVQ) – Two former daycare workers no longer face charges after a Wayne County grand jury failed to indict them Tuesday.

Diana Willett was charged with child abuse back in April after a video surfaced, seemingly showing her using a doll to taunt a crying child at Wendy’s Wonderland in Monticello.

The daycare was aware the 2-year-old had a fear of dolls and small animals, according to court documents.

Another employee, Tasha Cox, was accused of videotaping the incident. She was charged with failure to report child abuse.

According to Wayne County Circuit Court, the charges were dropped against the two women after the grand jury decided not to indict them.
