FLINT (WJRT) - The five teens accused of throwing rocks off an I-75 overpass on Oct. 18 that left one man dead appeared in court Thursday morning for a hearing.
Lawyers for the five teens requested mental competency evaluations for the suspects during the probable cause hearing, which the judge approved. The exams will take place in stages over the next two months, as they are evaluated by psychologists.
The suspects are 17-year-old Kyle Anger and 15-year-olds Mark Sekelski, Mikadyn Payne, Alexander Miller and Trevor Gray. All five remain in police custody as the case progresses through the initial stages in court.
A request to allow some or all of the suspects out of jail on bond before the trial could be made as the case moves forward.
The teens, who all attend Clio High School, are accused of throwing more than a dozen rocks off the Dodge Road overpass onto southbound I-75 in Vienna Township. One of the rocks thrown by Anger crashed through the windshield of a van and killed 32-year-old Kenneth White, who was riding as a passenger.
