In the Michigan case, the girl was beaten with a baseball bat and stabbed to death in her parents’ home by her boyfriend. He then put her body in a trash bag and into a garbage can. It was discovered in her family’s garage by police and her parents, according to the attorney for the girl’s parents.

The settlement was entered Monday — the third anniversary of her death.

The girl’s then 20 year old boyfriend was convicted of the murder in December 2006 and sentenced to life in prison.
