LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The former owner of a Louisville day care center whose van was involved in a deadly crash has been indicted on theft and fraud charges.
A Jefferson County grand jury returned two indictments against Levonia Lewars on Thursday.
WAVE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/QdCcoZ ) Lewars is facing one count of a fraudulent scheme or plan to obtain fraudulent benefits over $10,000, and one count of theft by deception over $10,000.
The June 12 crash involving a van from Heavenly Angels Childcare Center killed one woman and injured the driver and 14 children.
Lewars shut down the three locations of Heavenly Angels after the crash.
