Updated: Step mother charged in death of New Haven 2-year old girl
Accused killer Renee King on Tuesday begged a magistrate to be allowed to attend the funeral service scheduled today for the 2-year-old stepdaughter she is accused of sexually assaulting and beating to death. “I swear to God on my life I didn’t do this,” a sobbing King said. “I just want to be able to see my husband and my kids and be with them through this hard time (today) for my stepdaughter’s burial. I’m accused of doing something I never would have done.”
Instead, 42nd District Court Magistrate Joseph Plawecki ordered the 28-year-old woman to be held in the Macomb County Jail without bond at Tuesday’s arraignment proceedings. King is accused in the blunt force trauma homicide of her stepdaughter, Lily Furneaux-Wolfenbarger, whose body was found unresponsive Saturday afternoon in the New Haven home King shares with her husband, Lily’s father.
