Martzen Pleads To Involuntary Manslaughter

Megan Martzen on Thursday pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of 17-month-old Ella VanLeeuwen in Reedley in 2009.

Martzen is scheduled to appear for sentencing on April 30 in Fresno Superior Court.

In a brief statement outside of the court, Martzen said, "I just look forward to sharing my story with others. So this doesn't happen to anyone else."
