Former MI health official in water crisis in court Friday

By  | 

FLINT, Mich. (WILX) -- Two top health officials to former governor Rick Snyder are expected to be in court on charges connected to the Flint Water Crisis on Friday.

Attorney's for Michigan Health and Human Services director Nick Lyon are set to argue why charges should be dismissed because of mistakes by a judge.

Lyon is facing involuntary manslaughter and other charges.

The involuntary manslaughter charges are related to two men who died from legionnaires disease during the water crisis.

Lyon was bound over for trial back in august.

The former chief medical executive for the state will be in a separate Genessee County courtroom as well.

Eden Wells is scheduled to appear in court for the first time since a judge ruled last December that she'll stand trial on involuntary manslaughter and other charges related to the Flint crisis.
