The daycare director charged with child neglect after an infant was found dead in a van was arraigned on Monday morning.

Darryl Ewing, 56, was initially charged with second-degree child neglect after a 4-month-old girl died after being left in a van at a Westside daycare back in May.

According to court documents, the child neglect charge was dropped and he's now being charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.
