ESCANABA - Previous acts of violence by an Escanaba woman - accused of seriously abusing her baby - will be allowed to be presented as evidence of domestic violence during her trial in March, the court decided Friday.

Angel Dawn Micheau, 21, accused of first-degree child abuse, is scheduled to go to trial on the 15-year felony March 12-15. Micheau was arrested on Oct. 21, 2011, for child abuse stemming from an April 11, 2011 incident involving burns on her three-month-old daughter. Her daughter is now one year old. The charge accuses Micheau of knowingly or intentionally causing serious physical harm - partial thickness burns - to the victim. The burns were allegedly caused by exposure to scalding water or steam, according to court records.

A woman from Tulsa, Oklahoma is suing the city's code enforcement teams after they illegally cut down her entire survival garden.

Denise Morrison, who started the garden after becoming unemployed, had over 100 medicinal and edible plants in her front and back yard. She told local Tulsa reporters that she started her garden, after becoming unemployed, as a way to feed herself and treat a variety of medical issues. Instead of relying on government handouts, this woman took matters into her own hands and decided to become self sufficient. She filled her yard with things like, fruit trees, berries, nut trees, and a wide variety of edible and medicinal herbs. She used these herbs to treat her diabetes, high-blood pressure and arthritis.

In what may be the first proceeding of its kind in Montana, two women jointly adopted 4-year-old Morrgan -- both names were on the petition, not one or the other as is the usual procedure when gay couples want to adopt.

"We filled out the forms and the state wouldn't accept them. They're all set up for a mother and a father, not two mothers," Boettcher said. "When our case was transferred from Cascade to Yellowstone County, we were assigned a Family Resources officer. He was supportive and helped set us up to both be adoptive parents."
