Woman faces sentencing in 1998 death of teen granddaughter

FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A 75-year-old Michigan woman who pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in the 1998 death of her 14-year-old granddaughter faces sentencing.

Coral Hall's remains haven't been found. She disappeared 17 years ago after making a call at a pay phone near the White Horse Tavern in Flint.

Lois Janish entered the plea in September in Genesee County court. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing, which is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Janish was charged about two years ago. At that time, a police detective said Janish admitted to beating her granddaughter with a hammer and scattering the remains with help from a boyfriend.
