Cases Moving Forward in Two Student Murders
Proceedings for murder cases involving students at two Michigan universities are moving forward.
A hearing for two suspects in the death of an Eastern Michigan University football player has been delayed until next week. Kristopher Pratt and Ed Thomas are charged with open murder in the death of Demarius Reed. The Chicago man was found dead in his Ypsilanti apartment building a short distance from campus. Police believe robbery was the motive for the attack.
In another high-profile murder case in Michigan, a judge has scheduled a May 19th trial for one of two suspects in the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan student Paul DeWolf. The medical student, who also had a military background, was killed in a break-in at his Ann Arbor fraternity house. Again robbery was the apparent motive.
Washtenaw County Judge Archie Brown on Wednesday set the date for 20-year-old Joei Jordan who is charged with an open count of murder and home invasion.
