A local daycare owner is out of business and in the custody of the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Department following a suspected case of child abuse last week. Diane Honaker, 50, is accused of shaking a 6-month-old girl after the Children’s Hospital & Medical Center reported injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome to local authorities on Nov. 12. Honaker, who operated a daycare service out of her home at 15829 Briar St., was arrested the next day following a Sheriff’s Department investigation. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services issued an emergency order to suspend her child care license. The child is expected to survive.
