A Florida day care owner has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murder in the death of a toddler in 2014.

The Santa Rosa County Judge, Kelvin Wells reportedly sentenced 58-year-old Thelma Lowery immediately after a jury reached a guilty verdict Friday.

Lowery was caring for 15-month-old Brodie Kent at her home day care when he had to be rushed to a hospital. He died days later.

During the five-day trial, Lowery said another child hit Brodie. She said that she found him covered in vomit and called an ambulance when he starting having seizures.

Lowery’s attorneys argued that Brodie could have had an undiagnosed condition, and no one was at fault in his death.

Doctors who testified said that Brodie’s brain swelling and other injuries could have been caused only by “non-accidental trauma.”
