Bronx Day Care Suspects Hauled Off To Face Charges

Bronx day care suspects hauled off to face charges after apparent fentanyl exposure killed toddler, hospitalized 3 others.

The Bronx day-care center where one tot died and three others were hospitalized from suspected fentanyl exposure was being used as a drug front, police sources said Sunday — as its owner was hauled to court.

Grei Mendez De Ventura, 36, the proprietor of Divino Nino Daycare, was stoic as she was led out of the 52nd Precinc t, followed by alleged cohort Caristo Acevedo Brito, 41 — who lived in the basement along with the drugged-up day-care business.

Brito hid his face from reporters as he was walked from the precinct wearing a white baseball cap and putting his head down. He was put in a separate NYPD car for the trip to Bronx Criminal Court.

Police said Mendez was later taken to Lincoln Hospital for a medical evaluation and is listed in stable condition.

The suspects — who face raps including murder — did not respond to questions from reporters outside the precinct.

Both suspects are awaiting arraignment.

The pair was charged Saturday with murder , assault and child endangerment in the suspected fentanyl-exposure death of 1-year-old Nicholas Feliz Dominici.

Three other children — two 2-year-old boys and the 8-month-old sister of one of them — remain hospitalized after being exposed to the deadly drug, according to police.

The kiddies were apparently exposed when the drug was cut in the day-care center and some of it floated into the air, allowing them to inhale it, law-enforcement sources explained.

Police have launched a manhunt for Ventura’s husband, who lived with her next door and is also sought in the boy’s death, sources said.
