Report: Northern Michigan woman wanted self, autistic daughter dead

TRAVERSE CITY (WKZO) -- A northern Michigan woman had taken all she could with her teenage autistic daughter and felt it was best if both she and the girl were dead.

UpNorthLive.com reports Kelli Stapleton made the statement to Munson Medical Center workers, adding Isabelle Stapleton had become too violent.  The woman and her daughter were found inside a van with burning charcoal grills and state police believe they only survived the murder-suicide attempt because fresh air got in when the mother got out for more charcoal.

The girl is now in the custody of her father, while her mother is held the Benzie County Jail without bond.
