    A sad case just got stranger. Maine prosecutors on Thursday charged a babysitter and her 10-year-old daughter with manslaughter, after Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway, a 3-month-old baby, died under the sitter's care. The baby’s mother, Nicki Greenaway, said the child had ingested medication and been suffocated. "I feel a little bit of relief that they're charging [the sitter's] daughter," she told the Associated Press, "but the mom really needs to be responsible. She's the one I left my daughter with." The girl is the youngest person to be charged with manslaughter in Maine in 25 years.
