MANCHESTER - A heartbroken grandmother grieving the death of her young granddaughter is now on a mission.
Three year old Brielle Gage died last November. Her mother, 26 year old Katlyn Marin of Nashua, faces 2nd degree murder charges in her death. She's accused of beating Brielle and not seeking medical attention for the girl's injuries.
Paternal grandmother, Sharon Boucher of Manchester, says she wants to change the system that failed Brielle.
Boucher said, "No child should ever be placed back into a home where felony child abuse charges are pending against the parent."
Marin was arrested six months before Brielle's death, accused of assaulting two children.
Boucher said, "That's why I'm so angry. If they had placed her with me last July like I requested from the court, she would be alive today."
Boucher's now starting a foundation in Brielle's memory. Part of the mission is to change state law to better protect abuse victims.
Boucher said, "I don't want her death to be in vain. If she had to die in such a heinous manner, I want something good to come out of it."
