      Meth lab suspect fails to show in court due to receiving treatment

      Nichole Saatio, one of the Chassell meth lab suspects, was not in Houghton County Circuit Court on Monday. Saatio's lawyer asked the judge for a continuance and told him that Saatio is receiving treatment from the Odyssey House, a substance abuse facility.

      The 25-year-old is charged with possessing methamphetamine and ecstasy and operating or maintaining a meth lab.

      The judge set another pretrial in January, and the prosecuting attorney says Saatio may be tried with another meth lab suspect next year.
