Michelle Hanson, the mother charged in the death of her three-year-old son Kaden Young, will be tried outside of Orangeville. 

Ms. Hanson appeared in the Orangeville Superior Court room on Tuesday (Feb. 11) with her lawyer Marco Forte for the decision that her trial be held outside of Orangeville. Mr. Forte and assistant Crown attorney Danielle Garbaty did not comment following the court appearance. 

A publication ban has been put into place preventing the publication of any information brought up in the courtroom, including possible locations for the trial. 

On the early morning hours of Feb. 21, 2018 Ms. Hanson failed to stop at a ‘road closed’ sign at the 10th Line of Amaranth, driving onto the flooded road. The minivan she was driving was pulled into the Grand River. Ms. Hanson and Kaden, who was in the vehicle with his mother, both managed to escape but Kaden was pulled from his mother’s arms. Kaden’s body was found under a bridge in Belwood Lake by two fisherman on April 21, two months to the day he went missing. Ms. Hanson was arrested on October 11, 2018. She will appear in court again on March 23 to confirm trial dates.
