Morales Charged with Open Murder, Manslaughter in Benzie County
Northern Michigan’s News Leader was in a Benzie County courtroom as a Chicago woman was charged again in the death of her baby.
Alyce Morales gave birth to a little girl at a campsite in Beulah last July.
Last month, it was agreed that Morales would be re-charged today after the defense said both parties reached a resolution that could include a plea deal or charges being dropped.
But today, she was charged again with open murder and a manslaughter charge was added. Morales pleaded not guilty to both charges.
