(UnitedVoice.com) – Troopers with the Michigan State Police stumbled upon a gruesome scene in 2021. A man was in the hospital, covered in severe chemical burns. They later arrested his daughter for the crime. She went on trial recently, and a jury has now reached its decision.
On June 15, an Oakland County, Michigan, jury found 19-year-old Megan Joyce Imirowicz guilty of felony unlawful possession or use of harmful irritants causing death and misdemeanor domestic violence. The victim was her father, Konrad Imirowicz.
On October 2, 2021, the Michigan State Police released a statement about an incident that occurred the day before. Authorities were sent to the Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc to take down information about the victim. The 64-year-old had arrived from Groveland Township, and his torso, head, and extremities were covered in chemical burns.
Law enforcement went to Imirowicz’s home and discovered lye drain cleaner all over the sofa, where EMS found him lying. Troopers eventually learned Megan, then 18, was home at the time of the incident. They discovered that she threw lye powder and water on her father while he was sleeping. She then left him there, and a neighbor later found him.

Megan was angry with her father because he struggled with alcohol addiction. The night of the incident, he was unable to drive her to the hair salon, and she became enraged. She waited for him to go to sleep, then attacked. The victim lived for five months after the incident. He died on March 6, 2022, after being removed from life support.
Karen McDonald, the Oakland County Prosecutor, called the case “tragic” and said Megan “lashed out in anger” and killed her dad.
The sentencing is scheduled for July 25. Megan is facing life in prison and up to $40,000 in fines for the felony of using the irritant and a fine of $500 and/or 93 days in jail for the domestic violence charge.
