Custodial dad, step back in court for torture-murder of 5-year-old daughter (Port Huron, Michigan)

The custodial dad is identified as ANDREW MAISON. See the Killer Dads and Custody list for Michigan.

We have a posted on this case before. Here is one of the posts, where we find out that the girl's mother had been shut off from any contact for a year and a half. She had no money to go to court. These problems are very common for non-custodial mothers.

Live from court: Father, stepmother charged in girl's death back in court

Times Herald 9:49 a.m. EDT June 9, 2015

The father and stepmother of a 5-year-old girl found dead in her Port Huron home May 26 are due in court at 9 a.m. for a probable cause hearing.

Andrew Maison, 25, and Hilery Maison, 27, are charged with open murder, two counts of torture and two counts of first-degree child abuse.

Mackenzie Maison was pronounced dead after rescue crews responded to her Oak Street home the evening of May 26 to a report of an unresponsive child. Her 3-year-old sister was taken to a hospital for malnourishment.

Two other children were taken from the home.

Both children were younger than 11 and Hilery Maison's biological children and did not show signs of neglect, according to officials.

Officials have said Mackenzie was malnourished, had a severe infection and pneumonia when she died.
