Michigan Mother Convicted, Sentenced in Death of 10-Month-Old

(AbsoluteNews.com) – Parents are supposed to love and protect their children. Mothers, in particular, usually have a special connection with their babies. There’s nothing more ferocious than the love of a mother — at least, that is how it should be. Sadly, a Michigan mom failed in that respect and now she’s headed to prison.

In October, a jury convicted Tatiana Fusari, 30, of first-degree murder and first-degree child abuse in the 2018 killing of her 10-month-old daughter. Her husband, Seth Welch, called 911 one morning after finding the infant dead in her crib. A medical examiner found the baby was malnourished and dehydrated when she died. She hadn’t been fed for days at the time of her death and had only gained one pound in the months since her birth. The autopsy found the baby had been dead for at least 72 hours.

Welch was convicted of the murder in 2020. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole in a separate case.

On Wednesday, November 17, Kent County Judge Paul J. Denefeld sentenced Fusari to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Her attorney, Damian Nunzio, told the court he was going to appeal. The defendant has said she was abused repeatedly by her husband, but the jury didn’t buy her excuse.

The couple has three other children who were placed under social services protection.
