INMAN, S.C. (AP) — Two former workers at a day care center in upstate South Carolina have been charged with child neglect.

Spartanburg County sheriff’s deputies say the two were charged after deputies received video footage showing mistreatment of children at the child care center in Inman.

Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Bobo released a statement saying 44-year-old Sonya Smith Fredo of Campobello and 32-year-old Stacy Faith Whitlock of Inman were each charged Friday with two counts of neglect.

Bobo said both of the children involved were under 10 and one has Down syndrome.

Deputies said that Fredo and Whitlock were employees at the Main Street USA child care center. It was not immediately known if the two have attorneys.
