Lee County, GA (WALB) - A Lee County home day care owner voluntarily surrendered her business registration after the death of a four month old baby at her home.

Barbara Ann Fuller officially turned in her license to the state Monday.

She will continue to operate until August 7th, so that parents can find other care for their children.

Four month old Jace Hester stopped breathing at the day care center back in February. He was pronounced dead later that day. The G-B-I ruled his death an unexplained sudden infant death, and Investigators said there was no criminal negligence.

But the state agency that licenses day care centers reported 16 rule violations and revoked the center's registration. Fuller appealed that decision, but Monday reversed course and said she was closing her day care business.

State officials inspected Fuller's business daily since their July 11th ruling. Fuller did not return our calls Tuesday.
