KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Three former Michigan youth center staff members charged in the death of a Black teenager who was restrained after throwing a sandwich have been arraigned.
Michael Mosley of Battle Creek and Heather McLogan of Kalamazoo turned themselves in Wednesday to authorities and appeared in Kalamazoo County District Court on involuntary manslaughter and second-degree child abuse charges.
A third former employee of Lakeside Academy in Kalamazoo, Zachary Solis of Lansing, was arraigned Tuesday after turning himself in.
They were charged last week in the May 1 death of 16-year-old Cornelius Fredericks.
A civil lawsuit has been filed against Lakeside Academy and Sequel Youth and Family Services by Fredericks’ estate.
Lakeside Academy, a facility for teenagers with behavioral problems, last month lost its contract with the state of Michigan to care for youth in the state’s foster care and juvenile justice systems and its license to operate.
