Springers head back to court

The Michigan Supreme Court said Anthony and Marsha Springer, parents of the late Calista Springer, are entitled to a hearing in St. Joseph County Circuit Court to determine whether their attorney provided ineffective assistance in 2010.
Springer was the 16-year-old Centreville girl who died in a 2008 house fire while chained to her bed.
A jury subsequently convicted Anthony, 52, and Marsha, 45, of torture and child abuse; the Springers eventually took their cases to the Michigan Supreme Court.
In the orders handed down in each case, the state supreme court said the circuit court in St. Joseph County and the state appeals court failed to consider whether the Springers’ received ineffective counsel pertaining to a legal question in their case.
