10-Year old Maine Girl Formally Charged with Manslaughter in the Death of a Fairfield Infant

A 10-year-old Maine girl has formally been charged with manslaughter in the death of a Fairfield infant. The girl is the youngest person to be charged with manslaughter in Maine in at least 25 years. The infant, Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway of Clinton had been left overnight with an adult baby sitter in Fairfield. The sitter called police on July 8 to report that the infant was not breathing. When emergency workers arrived, the child was unresponsive.

Brooklyn’s mother, Nicole Greenaway of Clinton, said the 10-year-old was the sitter’s daughter. Authorities told her the baby had ingested medication to treat attention-deficit disorder and been suffocated.

Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, in a release today, said detectives uncovered some “troubling signs” before the state medical examiner declared the death a homicide. Manslaughter charges are brought when a homicide is caused by reckless actions or criminal negligence.
