STANTON, Mich. (WOOD) — A 17-year-old from the Morley area faces murder charges in the death of her 3-month-old son last year.

The Montcalm County prosecutor confirmed Thursday that Mistie Moyer is charged with open murder, felony murder and three counts of first-degree child abuse in the death of her son Fred LeRoy Wallace III.

Fred was born Aug. 12, 2018, and died Nov. 19.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide and also found the baby had previous injuries, including a broken arm and broken ribs.
