4 Individuals Killed Woman and Stuffed her Body in a Bag in Michigan; Incident send Shockwaves in Community

Law and Crime reported on Saturday, May 25, 2024, that four people involved in the horrible murder of 23-year-old mother Kayla Sedoskey and her abandonment in a Michigan youth detention center have been sentenced.

Michigan State Police found Kayla Sedoskey’s dead body at the Boysville Juvenile Detention Center in Frenchtown Township, southwest of Detroit, on March 2, 2023. The center was empty at the time.

Her body had been stuffed under a door after being tied down and covered with a blanket. Three shots were fired at Sedoskey, and one hit her right in the head and killed her.

At first, it was found that Sedoskey had been “catfished” online and was then lured to the abandoned building. She was killed horribly by the people who used this trick to trick her.

The people who were involved in killing Sedoskey were sentenced by Monroe County Circuit Judge Daniel S. White.

Steven D. Bails Jr., 45, was found guilty of first-degree murder in March and given a term of life in prison without the chance of parole.

Narena Bails, his wife of 25 years, and Sierra Bemis, a partner of hers, both pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. Bemis was given a sentence of 18 to 30 years, and Narena was given 13 to 30 years.

Alexander Feko, 27, pleaded guilty to fiddling with evidence and three counts of being an accessory to a murder after the fact. He was given a sentence of 5 to 10 years in prison.

Two more people charged in the case will be sentenced on May 30. Judge White’s harsh reprimand during the sentence showed how cruel and pointless the crime was.

He said, “You can’t just kill someone because they bother you or get a bunch of follow-alongs to go along with this crazy plan.”

What the Michigan State Police found in their study into what happened before Sedoskey’s murder was very disturbing.

Jeffery A. Yorkey, the prosecuting attorney for Monroe County, said that the reason for the killing was still not clear.

However, there was proof that it could have been a “wedding present” from Steven Bails to his wife or a murder done as a form of revenge after a fight between Sedoskey and one of the defendants.

Kayla Sedoskey was a proud member of the Saginaw Chippewas tribe and was liked by most of her people. What her biography said about her was that she loved anime art and camping and being in nature.

What’s more, she cared deeply about the people around her, and that will always be remembered by her friends and family.
