Maliyah was pronounced dead at an area hospital, and Aubrianna faced critical injuries and was transferred to Lubbock, Texas, KVII reported.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney Andrea Reeb told KVII that evidence presented during the trial showed that Taylor Tots Day Care did not follow proper rules and procedures, including failing to do headcounts, driving the children without permission and failing to have proper care giver to child ratio.
Defense attorneys for the Taylors argued that the women did not intentionally leave the children in the car, saying it was an accident, KOB reported.
"It all could have been prevented. That's what hurts us the most," Victoria Salas,, Maliyah’s great-aunt, told the television station.
