A court hearing will continue on Thursday morning in Pontiac for a second metro Detroit mother accused of not vaccinating her child.


Lori Matheson is objecting to a friend of the court order that found her daughter should get vaccinated.

She argues her family is pre-disposed to auto-immune injuries and a "23 and Me" genetic test will show that, and that the test should have been done before the referee made their determination.

The attorney for her daughter's father says the daughter's doctor recommended the vaccines and said her church allows them.

Rebecca Bredow was sentenced last week for contempt of court after she refusing a court order to get her son vaccinated within one week.
