Man Linked To Dead Child Faces Drug Sentencing

November 29, 2012, 6:10 AM by Austin Hoffman

Man Linked To Dead Child Faces Drug Sentencing
Taylor Cournoyer

WAGNER, SD -

One of the adults responsible for a two-year-old whose body was found in the closet of their Wagner home on July 4 will be sentenced on drug charges Thursday morning.

Court documents show that Taylor and Laurie Cournoyer were both using meth in the days leading up to the discovery of RieLee Lovell's body, which authorities say was there for sometime before it was discovered.

Twenty-one-year-old Taylor Cournoyer is scheduled to be sentenced at 10 a.m. in Lake Andes for possession of meth and keeping a place where meth is used or sold. In October, he pleaded guilty to both charges. He is also a habitual offender, which has elevated the time he could spend in prison to 25 years.

Twenty-eight-year-old Laurie Cournoyer is charged with abuse or cruelty to a minor and failure to notify law enforcement of the death of a child.

The judge is allowing audio recordings during the hearing.  You can listen in live on our Live Coverage page of KELOLAND.com when it begins at 10 a.m.
