Court announces court date for parental rights decision

ESCANABA — The fate of future parental rights for two Rapid River residents will be revealed at a court hearing next week.

Last month, Michael Lavoie and Tammy Fryer were on trial in Delta County Probate Court, concerning the living conditions their two daughters were found in by authorities. This comes after their 3-year-old daughter was found naked in a field by a dog in March.

Judge Robert Goebel Jr. is deciding the case. He will reveal his decision at a hearing on Thursday, August tenth.
