FLINT, MI – Four of the five teens who were involved in a rock throwing incident that claimed the life of 32-year-old Kenny White have accepted plea deals.
The fifth teen, Kyle Anger, who is the one believed to have thrown the fatal boulder off the I-75 Dodge Road overpass was not in court because his lawyer had a family emergency.
Alexander Miller, 15-years-old, Mark Sekelsky, 16-years-old, Mikadyn Payne, 16-years-old and Trevor Gray, 15-years-old, had their charges reduced from second-degree murder to manslaughter. They had also been charged with conspiracy and malicious destruction of property. All five teens were from Clio.
The five teens were facing second degree murder charges after Kenny White was killed when rocks were thrown onto I-75 from the Dodge Road overpass on Wednesday evening, October 18th, 2017.
At approximately 8:30pm, Kenneth White, 32-years-old, of Mt. Morris, was riding in the passenger seat of a van on his way home from a work trip to Au Gres. White and his co-workers in the van were heading south bound on I-75, when a large rock was thrown from the Dodge Road overpass. That large boulder slammed through the windshield of the van, critically injuring him. Kenneth White was transported to a local area hospital where he later died due to his injuries.
The charge of second degree murder against Kyle Anger remains in effect until he appears in court on August 6th. The plea agreements that have been reached with the other 4 teens could prove problematic for Anger because they could testify against him if his case
A judge must accept the plea agreements, determine and schedule sentencing.
