Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy has charged Sara Marie King, 25 (DOB: 7/16/91) of Detroit, with two Counts of Child Abuse Second Degree.* On January 28, 2017 at approximately 2:40 p.m., it is alleged that she left her two daughters, ages six-years-old and eight-months-old, alone in their home, located in the 1600 block of Tyler. The six-year-old went outside on the porch and yelled to neighbors for help. A neighbor took the girls to her house and called the police. When the police arrived at the girls’ home, they observed that there was no heat or lights and the home was in terrible condition. The girls were taken to a local hospital and are now residing with a relative.

The defendant was arraigned this morning in 36th District Court. The probable cause conference is scheduled for February 9, 2017 at 8:30 a.m.; the preliminary examination is scheduled for February 14, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. Both hearings are before Judge Shannon Holmes in 36th District Court. The defendant received a $75,000/10% bond.

*The charges are allegations and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
