Mother wants tougher charges in Missouri daughter's deathPosted on 2 October 2017 at 8:52am
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — A mother is questioning the charges filed against a man accused of providing alcohol to her 19-year-old daughter, who died with a blood-alcohol content that was seven times higher than the state's legal limit.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that 22-year-old Keelan Miller, of Sedalia, is free on bond on charges of abandonment of a corpse and evidence tampering in the death of Camille Crews.
Court records say Miller woke up last November to find Crews dead. Police say Miller called 911, but with a fake name and only after dragging the corpse outside of the apartment, throwing away some of her clothes and washing the bedsheets.
Crews' mother, Serena Latham, wants a manslaughter charge. But prosecutors say state law won't support it. Miller's attorney didn't immediately return a phone message.
