"Dr. Phil" Mom In Court For Baby Suffocation Death - WLNS TV 6 Lansing - Jackson | Your Local News Leader

UPDATE: "Dr. Phil" Mom To Stand Trial For Baby Suffocation Death

UPDATE (12:24pm): A judge has decided there's enough evidence to send Redman to trial for involuntary manslaughter and second degree child abuse.

We'll have more on the testimony and the decision tonight on 6 News at 6.


ORIGINAL STORY (11:32am) A woman who once appeared on the Dr. Phil show for having an overweight child was back in court on Thursday.

Amanda Redman faces charges for rolling on top her 27-day-old daughter and suffocating the child.

Court documents show that her blood alcohol content was .16 on the morning Amillia died.

Redman wept as she heard some of the evidence in her in a preliminary hearing. She faces a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Redman has lost parental rights to three of her children and the Department of Human Services has moved to terminate her rights to her three other children.

Redman rose to fame as having a 3-year-old who weighed 120 pounds. That's what prompted her appearance on the Dr. Phil show back in 2003.

Jackson Bureau reporter Maureen LaForge is in court for the hearing and will have more tonight on 6 News at 6.
