Mackenzie Maison’s Killers Sentenced

Posted by Sandra On March - 11 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS













PORT HURON, Michigan – The “monstrous acts” that led to the murder of Mackenzie Maison defied “explanation or understanding,” a St. Clair County circuit judge said Thursday. Judge Daniel Kelly said Mackenzie is the third child-victim whose case he’s presided over in recent years where the death was orchestrated by the child’s parents and step-parents. “What puzzles me is how, in a community so dedicated to combating child abuse and neglect, these conditions go undetected until it is too late,” Kelly said. A father and his wife were found guilty of murdering of his five-year-old daughter Friday in a Michigan courtroom. The couple, Andrew, 25, and Hilery Maison, 27, of Port Huron were convicted of felony murder in the death of Mackenzie Maison. In addition, they were also found guilty of first-degree child abuse and torture of Mackenzie and her three-year-old sister Makayla. READ MORE HERE
