NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. (NBC, KYMA/KECY) - Two people have been arrested after one child died and three others were injured due to alleged fentanyl exposure at a New York City daycare.
A man and a woman, Carlisto Acevedo Brito and Grei Mendez, were arrested Saturday night on murder charges as well as manslaughter, assault, criminal possession of a controlled substance and narcotic drug and endangering the welfare of a child.
