Her family now is demanding answers.

They want to know why the suspect — a habitual offender whose crimes include home invasion, weapons violations, drug possession and larceny — was paroled to begin with. He was paroled in May, five years after he was sentenced to 4-20 years in prison for home invasion and drug possession.

“Why, why was he let out?” her mother, Angela Vitale, said through tears. “They should be held responsible — whoever let him out should be held responsible.”

Her daughter, who was helping put her husband through medical school and was just settling down in her new home, deserves justice, she said.

“She was a great person … a good kid, hardworking,” her mother recalled. “She had a whole life ahead of her.”

The accused killer

Weatherhead’s accused killer is John McCallum, 27, of Detroit, who is facing numerous charges in her death, including second-degree murder. He was arraigned Thursday in 16th District Court and was ordered jailed. A preliminary examination has been set for Oct. 23.
