DETROIT — The Michigan Court of Appeals says a mother accused of firing a shot when police tried to remove her physically-impaired daughter from their Detroit home in 2011 should face charges.

The decision was released this week. The Wayne County prosecutor's office had appealed a 2014 decision by 36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles to dismiss charges a second time against Maryanne Godboldo.

Godboldo was arrested in March 2011 on discharging a weapon, felonious assault and other charges.

She said police came to her home because she took her then-13-year-old daughter off an anti-psychotic drug used to contain aggression and treat autism. State officials maintained the girl was at-risk without proper medication.

Charges were initially dismissed in August 2011 by Giles, but the appeals court ordered them reinstated after prosecutors appealed.
