Stapleton To Keep Parental Rights

Posted: Updated:
October 4, 2013 -

In a Benzie County family courtroom a judge ruled in favor of Kelli Stapleton - for the sake of her children.

After police arrested Stapleton for the attempted murder of her 14-year-old daughter Isabelle, the Department of Human Services filed a child abuse and neglect petition as protocol dictates.

The petition calls into question the rights of the parent accused - in this case Kelli Stapleton.

9&10's Marisa McKay and Jeremy Erickson were inside the courtroom this afternoon as Judge John Mead handed down his verdict on this petition's dismissal.
