Montcalm Co. teen charged in death of 3-month-old son

Mistie Moyer

WINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan teenager has been charged with killing her 3-month-old son.

The Daily News of Greenville reports Wednesday that 17-year-old Mistie Moyer of Montcalm County’s Winfield Township was arraigned Jan. 11 on charges of murder and child abuse. Authorities say Fred LeRoy Wallace III died Nov. 19 while in Moyer’s care.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide and found older injuries, including a broken arm and ribs.

Defense attorney Randy Norton says he doesn’t comment on pending court cases.

Winfield Township is roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) northeast of Grand Rapids.

      This boy was in fact murdered after he was born (3 months old in case you missed it) I’m not sure what your point is. But thank you for illustrating mine.

          Care to elaborate more on what happened? I do see you stated “use to be your best friend” but just wondering if you kept in touch. She’s still high school age, being 17. I’m heartbroken to hear of yet another baby passing due to the neglect or alleged neglect of their baby. :( this article did not say anything much. Anything you can fill in?

    Not enough info here for me, I’ll hold on my position, I am aghast at the thought of a 3 month old being murdered, but there may be more to this story. I feel for the whole family.
