Prosecutors: Lake deserves tougher sentence
A Cannon Falls man charged with manslaughter in connection with a toddler's death deserves tougher than normal penalties if convicted, according to Goodhue County prosecutors.
Justin Lake allegedly admitted to police that on July 1, 2009, while babysitting 2-year-old Jazmyn Weiker-Hanson, he caused her to violently hit her head. Lake then delayed seeking medical attention for the toddler. Weiker-Hanson died four days later.
