Rogers City mom says baby stillborn
The Rogers City mom accused of playing a role in the death of her newborn baby waived her right to a preliminary examination Tuesday.
Karrie Lynn Mulka, 28, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of her infant daughter.
Investigators believe Mulka failed to provide adequate medical care for the baby immediately after she was born and that negligence led to the infant’s death.
Mulka claims the baby was not born alive. Presque Isle County Prosecutor Rick Steiger offered her the opportunity to take a polygraph test Tuesday and she agreed. The test will be taken on May 29.
Mulka’s bond was reduced from $100,000 to $25,000, however if she posts bond she is required to wear a GPS and an alcohol monitoring device. She would also be placed under house arrest and must stay with her parents.
Last month a forensic examiner found Mulka competent to stand trial and able to understand the difference between right and wrong and what is lawful or unlawful.
A date for her arraignment in circuit court has not been set.
