A Michigan mother will spend the next 20 to 80 years in prison for the death of her 6-month-old son who she left strapped in a car seat in a hot attic for 32 hours as she partied and did drugs with friends.
Lovily Johnson, 23, apologized for the July 2017 death of her son, Noah Johnson, who died in an attic apartment without air conditioning. An autopsy revealed the infant went without food and water and had suffered from a diaper rash so severe that several areas of his skin had fallen off. At the time of Noah’s death, the single mother was out partying and doing drugs. Judge Mark Trusock called “outrageously disturbing,” accusing Lovily of seeking out air conditioning and drugs while her son baked in a sweltering room alone.
