Her co-defendant, 34-year-old Justin Farrsiar, has a Circuit Court motions hearing on June 25th.

He and Korpela were charged with five felonies, including operating a meth lab in the presence of a minor and operating a meth lab near a school or church.

The charges come from an active meth lab on South Mansfield Street in Ironwood.

The lab caught fire on New Year’s Eve.
