Court file: Michigan girl who killed toddler heard voices

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -

Court documents say an 8-year-old girl accused of killing a toddler at a home daycare in western Michigan suffers from "serious mental health" issues, including hearing a demon's voice.
   The Department of Health and Human Services filed a petition in Muskegon County Family Court saying the girl, who was also cared for at the home daycare, killed 14-month-old Korey Landon Brown on April 14.
   The petition filed last month asks the court to make the girl a temporary ward of the state and to place her in a location that protects her brother and other children.
   The petition says the best placement is Hawthorn Center, a state-run residential psychiatric facility in Northville for children and adolescents.
   Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat tells MLive the petition followed an investigation by multiple agencies.
