Teen charged in death of Georgia toddler ordered to create memorial

JONESBORO, Ga. — A judge has ordered an unusual punishment for a teen charged in the death of a toddler left in a hot van outside a Georgia day care center.

The 16-year-old who pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct must create some kind of memorial to 2-year-old Jazmin Green.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Jazmin's mother, April McAlister, says it made her feel good for the judge to order someone to make a memorial for her baby.

The teen worked at the day care and is not being named because she is a juvenile.

Her exact role in Jazmin's death is unclear. The day care center's owner and her daughter have also been charged, but their attorney denies they falsified documents and tried to cover up what happened.
