Former Tulsa Woman Charged In Second Baby's Death
TULSA, Oklahoma - A woman convicted of second-degree manslaughter in her baby's death in Tulsa seven years ago is now facing murder charges in another baby's death - this time in Michigan.
The Grand Rapids Press reports 32-year-old Lisa Rae Bryan faces charges of second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter and obstruction of justice.
The Emmet County woman is charged in the November 2016 death of her infant daughter, Isabella Powrozek.
A police report says Bryan changed her statement multiple times when questioned about her daughter's death and admitted holding the infant close to her chest while sleeping in a bed with the child.
It's unclear if Bryan has an attorney.
She was convicted of second-degree manslaughter in 2011 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and served 15 months.
Emmet County Sheriff Pete Wallin says that conviction involved the death of another infant Bryan had given birth to.
