A Michigan woman who killed her father for allegedly failing to get her to a hair appointment could have faced life in prison. Instead, she has been cut loose with time served and five years' probation.
According to prosecutors, Megan Joyce Imirowicz, 19, of Michigan was upset with her 64-year-old father, Konrad Imirowicz, because he was unable to drive her to a hair salon appointment ahead of her 18th birthday party, having become intoxicated,

Imirowicz threw lye powder and water on her father while he slept in their Groveland Township home, northwest of Detroit, on Oct. 1, 2021. The killer's friends later found the victim lying on a couch with catastrophic chemical burns.
Prosecutors indicated that Megan Imirowicz's friends notified her of Konrad Imirowicz's injuries over the phone, but that she scoffed and hung up,

The victim was taken to Ascension Genesys Hospital several hours after the attack.
While Konrad Imirowicz survived his daughter's initial attack, the damage was extensive. He had to have both legs amputated, underwent a tracheotomy and skin grafts, and suffered from various infections as well as kidney failure.
After months of agony, he succumbed to his injuries, dying on March 6, 2022.
Megan Imirowicz, reportedly jailed following her father's death, denied throwing chemicals on him, claiming instead she had thrown bread at him to wake him up.
On June 15, she was convicted of unlawful possession or use of harmful devices causing death, for which she potentially faced life in prison,

Instead, Judge Victoria Valentine sentenced her Tuesday to one year in jail, with credit for 506 days served, followed by five years of probation.
The Oakland Press indicated that Megan Imirowicz will have to undergo a psychological exam, drug testing, and a review in court six months into her probation, as well as wear an electronic tether.
Chief Assistant Prosecutor David Williams told the Oakland Press, "This was not the sentence we advocated for, however the judge ultimately decides what sentence will be imposed."
CourtTV with a smile, "I was praying for a miracle today and that's what I got," adding she "got really lucky" having Valentine has the judge presiding over her case.
After freely walking out of the court house, the killer reportedly went out for nuggets and fries.
