New attorneys for Benzie County mother accused of attempted murder


Kelli Stapleton and her husband Matt Stapleton are prominent members of the Frankfort-Elberta community. Kelli served on Elberta’s planning council and Matt is principal, athletic director and a coach for multiple sports at Frankfort High School, and a member of the Elberta Village Council.

Matt Stapleton could not be reached for comment, but last week he said Issy’s condition had greatly improved from a “coma-like” state to talking, walking, making requests and showing glimmers of her old personality.

Kelli Stapleton is being held in Benzie County’s jail without bond.
