Redding mother accused of murdering her child could face


A Redding mother accused of poisoning and killing her 2-year-old daughter could face the death penalty if convicted, according to the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office.

Macie Marie Silvey, 21, pleaded not guilty to the charge of first-degree murder Tuesday in Shasta County Superior Court.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Kelly Kafel said Silvey is not eligible for bail because the charges against the woman could qualify her for the death penalty.

While California Gov. Gavin Newsom placed a moratorium on executions in the state in 2019, criminal defendants can still be sentenced to death, Kafel said.
