Lange to enter plea Monday in death of child
A jury trial scheduled Monday for a Carrington woman accused of manslaughter and child neglect in the death of her baby has been canceled, according to court records.
Instead, Justice Lange, 25, Carrington, is scheduled to appear for a change of plea hearing and sentencing before Judge Cherie Clark at 9 a.m. Monday.
Lange was accused in the death of her 4-month-old son in July 2018. Court documents indicated she traveled to an isolated area of rural Stutsman County for eight days while using methamphetamine. An autopsy indicated the child died during that time.
Lange entered a not guilty plea during a September preliminary hearing. She has been held in an undisclosed location since.
