A Michigan teenager was convicted Thursday of throwing drain cleaner on her father as he napped after he reneged on a promise to take her to a hair salon for her 18th birthday.
Megan Joyce Imirowicz, 19, was found guilty by an Oakland County jury of unlawful use of irritants causing the death of 64-year-old Konrad Imirowicz on Oct. 1, 2021.
Her father, who struggled with alcoholism, was too drunk to drive her to the appointment, according to prosecutors.
The enraged teenager threw lye powder and water on him as he slept on a sofa in their Ortonville home, northwest of Detroit.
He suffered chemical burns across his body and succumbed to his injuries five months later.
The defendant, who broke into tears upon hearing the verdict, faces up to life in prison when she’s sentenced July 25.
The four-day trial included harrowing testimony from the defendant’s brother, Austin Imirowicz, and her mother, Joyce Conrad.
The son also testified about the night his father was rushed to the hospital. He said that not long after his father was admitted, his sister called him demanding the PIN to their dad’s ATM card.
