Woman charged with operating Pittsfield Township meth lab working toward plea deal
One of the two women charged with operating a meth lab in a Pittsfield Township condo will return to court in three weeks as negotiations for a plea deal continue.
Winona Day, who was 32 when she was charged in September, will be back before Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Archie Brown at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 21. Day has been charged with operating a lab involving methamphetamine and possessing methamphetamine.
Day was arrested in September after officers from the Livingston and Washtenaw Narcotics Enforcement Team (LAWNET) raided the condo where she lived with Karen Felton, who also has been charged in the case.
LAWNET investigators seized a couple of grams of methamphetamine and found various items used to produce the drug in the condo, according to police. Among the items were fuel, drain cleaner and battery acid, according to LAWNET records. The condo was deemed hazardous, and the Michigan State Police Methamphetamine Investigation Team cleaned it up.
Day and Felton were forbidden to live at the home by Washtenaw County 22nd Circuit Court Judge Timothy Connors after Washtenaw County Public Health Department officials filed papers to ban the condo from being occupied, according to court records.
Day stated in court on Wednesday that she now lives in Almont and works in Royal Oak. She said she has been clean from drugs since her arrest.
“I have not been on any controlled substances,” Day told Brown during her hearing. Kyle Feldscher covers cops and courts for AnnArbor.com. He can be reached at email@example.com or you can follow him on Twitter.
