A Bronx day care worker has been arraigned on manslaughter charges in the death of a 20 month old child.

Athena Skeeter reportedly told police that she threw Cardwell Williamson on the ground and then stepped on his stomach three times.

“She was supposed to provide child care.  All She provided was the death of my child,” Cardell’s father, Carlyle Williamson, told the Daily News.

The child was rushed to Bronx Lebanon Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The city’s medical examiner ruled the death a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to the head and torso.

Skeeter has also been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
