The mother of a boy beaten to death in a Marilla trailer home a year ago has been charged with a misdemeanor in connection with the child’s death.
Heather Schoepflin, 27, of Delevan, was arraigned Friday morning in Marilla Town Court on one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
Devon Vanderwege, 18, who lived in the trailer with Schoepflin, her four children and three other adults pleaded guilty in February to first-degree manslaughter for inflicting the fatal injuries on 2-year-old Ethan Bigham, who died March 12, 2017. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 9.
