Marsha Byers Mills has been in the news all over Ohio. She was babysitting a long-time friend’s children in March 2006, when one child fell down the stairs onto cement. Ms. Mills put a wet cloth on his head, called the father to tell him of the accident, and thought the child would wake up.
The father called 911 and when he arrived, the rescue workers tried to revive the boy. He was transported to Union Hospital in Dover, then life-flighted to Akron Children’s, where he was pronounced dead a day later.
Needless to say, this was a tragic accident, yet because of Dr. Daryl Steiner and others ["Guilty Until Proven Innocent
," April 18], Ms. Mills was sent to Marysville Prison, where she is housed with convicted murderers.
