BENZIE COUNTY, MI (WHTC) -- A woman accused of trying to kill her autistic daughter and herself was scheduled to be in court today for a probable-cause hearing.  According to UpNorthLive.com, a state police detective, Rick Sekely, noted that she was… “kind of at her wit’s end” and “the best solution for the family was that if Issy and herself went to heaven.”  Sheriff’s deputies found both Kelli Stapleton and her daughter in the family van where she had lit portable charcoal grills.  The hearing was delayed with no new date set.  Stapleton remains in jail without bond.
