BARAGA COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - A L’Anse woman accused of murdering a toddler in December 2017 has been sentenced in Baraga County Circuit Court.
37-year-old Genevieve Lynn Meyers was sentenced to a minimum of 22 years and 6 months to 40 years for the charge of Homicide, 2nd degree murder.
Meyers previously pleaded no contest to the charge in August.
On December 23, 2017, the worried legal guardian brought her two-year-old nephew to Baraga County Memorial Hospital with several bruises on his body.
The child then was airlifted to the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where he was pronounced dead.
Meyers then was arrested after the autopsy revealed the child's cause of death was due to mistreatment.
