GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The director of a child care center in Greenville County has been arrested and accused of failing to report the neglect of two children, one of whom died in his home. 

WYFF-TV reported that Margaret Rose has been charged with failure to report child neglect. 

The mother of a toddler who was killed when a dresser fell on him and his sister has been charged with homicide by child neglect. Both parents have been charged with illegal neglect of a child. 

Sheriff's Deputy Jonathan Smith says Rose knew the children of Margie and Christopher Shaver were being neglected and failed to report it. 

The couple was arrested in March after 2-year-old Chandler Jerome Shaver was crushed under the dresser. 

It was not clear if Rose has an attorney.
