Biological Mother of Ricky Holland Denied Rights to Youngest Son

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - An Ingham County Judge has terminated parental rights to Casey Caswell, the mother of Ricky Holland.



The lawyer for Casey Caswell says Caswell is devastated and feels she never had a fair chance at gaining custody of her youngest son.



During her trial, prosecutors cited a history of homelessness and unemployment as reasons to take her youngest son away. But Caswell's lawyer says they had found a home and were working hard to find full-time work. He says he feels in this case, the system that was built to help has done nothing but hurt.


Caswell's lawyer says he plans to go through the judges decision more thoroughly and is considering an appeal.

The story of Casey Caswell is one we've been following for years, starting with the tragic death of her first child-Ricky Holland in 2005 at the hands of his adoptive parents. Since then, she's had five more children, all of which the state has taken.

Emerald Morrow will have more from the lawyer and the judge who made the decision coming up later on 6 News at 6
