A woman has been arrested in connection to the death of a 6-month-old child, authorities in Massachusetts say.

Middlesex District Attorney's Office says Pallavi Macharla was arrested Friday in connection to the baby's death, which happened a year ago to the day.

Authorities say Macharla was running an illegal daycare out of her Burlington home. She allegedly left her house at some point, leaving the baby in the care of her 15-year-old child.

The baby was found hardly breathing, and then died days later at the hospital, according to officials.

Macharla will be arraigned later on Friday.
