A babysitter in New Paris has been charged in connection with the death of a 19-month-old toddler. 58 year-old Jackie Rolston of New Paris has been charged with battery on a child resulting in death. Kirk Coleman died back in October due to blunt force trauma to the head. Court records show Rolston was charged in 2006 with neglect of a dependent and battery on a child. She pleaded guilty to the neglect charge and the battery charge was dismissed as part of the plea deal. She was sentenced to 18 months probation and served a year before her charge was reduced and she was released from probation.
