    So many children dying at the hands of a parent or other adults living in the home. I'm sure this little one has been taken into a place where there is no hunger and children are loved and not abused. Rest in peace little one.

    This is really close to me (within 30 miles) - so sad to hear, but glad the other children were removed and will hopefully be given a chance at a better life than their sister, may she rest in peace.

    I've checked WDIV, The Detroit News, and Port Huron Times Herald this morning, and the names of the two people in custody (dad, stepmom) have still not been released. They probably both have attorneys protecting their "rights"

    Dad, stepmom charged in death of malnourished girl

    Jeff Karoub, Associated Press 10:46 a.m. EDT May 29, 2015

    St. Clair County Prosecutor Mike Wendling tells The Associated Press that the warrants were signed Friday morning for 25-year-old Andrew Maison and 27-year-old Hilery Maison. They were arrested after police found Mackenzie Maison unresponsive Tuesday. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

    Bond was denied during an arraignment for Hilery Maison, who denied the charges and asked for an attorney. Andrew Maison’s arraignment was underway...

    I've followed many cases, but none TOO closely - is it normal to have "torture" charges, along with the murder and child abuse charges? The "torture" charges really shocked me - how could other people not have noticed/known what was going on with these people?! How do they prove "torture" as opposed to "child abuse"?? What's the difference? Poor kids, I hope the surviving children find a good home and can overcome their traumatic beginnings.
