Judge Finds Mother Who Police Say Admitted Smothering Her Infant to Death ‘Not Guilty’

An Indianapolis mother who allegedly told police she had smothered her 2‑month-old daughter to death has been set free after her trial.
Marion County Superior Court Judge Mark Stoner released Dacia Lacey after ruling that charges of neglect resulting in the death of her baby were not proved. If convicted, she could have faced 20 to 40 years in prison.
Police found Lacey’s daughter, Alona, unresponsive when they were called to the house in August 2022, according to WXIN-TV. The infant died at the scene.

On Wednesday, Stoner said he believed Lacey was guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the case.
However, she was charged with neglect causing death, and he found Lacey not guilty on that charge.
