Parental rights trial continues this week

ESCANABA — The future of parental rights for two Rapid River people continued today in Delta County Probate Court.

Michael Lavoie and Tammy Fryer are on trial after a dog found their 3-year-old daughter naked in a ditch back in March. Further investigation by authorities discovered the home that the 3-year-old and her 5-year-old sister was unfit for the kids to be living in for sanitary and other reasons.

Judge Robert Goebel Junior is presiding over the case, which is scheduled to last all week.
