DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Amanda Anderson pleaded not guilty to charges of child abuse resulting in death and tax evasion. The charges stem from an investigation at a day care provider in 2020.

South Metro firefighters responded to a home on Lexington Drive near Ridgegate Parkway for a call about a 3-month-old girl who was unconscious and not breathing. The child later died.
