Deadly rock throwing case on hold due to teens' competencies

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The case against the teenagers charged in the deadly rock throwing incident on I-75 last year has been put on hold because three of the five teens charged will be getting another competency exam.

State evaluations found Kyle Anger, Mark Sekelski and Trevor Gray are mentally competent, meaning they understand the charges against them in the October incident.

But their attorneys want a second opinion just to be sure.

"I think you're going to see as time goes on that there's differing roles, I think you're going to see different actions, and I think you're going to see different results but for right now I have no problem with it and I think it's a good thing."

Lawyers for the other two teens Alex Miller and Mikadyn Payne, did not request competency exams for their clients.

The group is accused of throwing rocks off an overpass, one of which killed Kenneth White.

All five are charged as adults with second degree murder.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for March.
