• Family remembers death of infant on 1-year anniversary

    By: Allison Latos


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Tuesday marks one year since a 4-month-old baby died inside Chesterbrook Academy daycare on Mallard Creek Road.
    Logan Bryant's family gathered in a private ceremony to remember his life.
    Bryant died from sudden infant death syndrome inside the facility.
    Police arrested former daycare workers Stephanie Johnson and Shanita Wright on child neglect charges last week. 
    They are accused of being rough with infants, falling asleep on the job and failing to do routine checks.
    Since then, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Lt. D.J. Johnson told Channel 9 the day care has received concerning phone calls.
    Channel 9 learned Chesterbrook Academy asked police for extra security after receiving those phone calls.
    “They were expressing frustration and anger at the school," he said.
    Police also said staff also noticed a suspicious car they didn't recognize in the parking lot. A day care spokesperson told Eyewitness News employees tried to approach it but the driver took off.
    Police put a patrol in the area as a precaution.
    "We're ready for anything whether it be protesters or somebody who has anything else in mind," said Johnson.
    The baby's father J.T. Bryant hopes there isn't any trouble.
    "I think the legal system should take care of any justice," said Bryant.
    A Chesterbrook Academy spokesperson said because they do not consider the calls or unfamiliar car threats, they did not notify families of their call to police.
