Teens withdraw guilty pleas in fatal freeway rock-throwing

September 14, 2019

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Four Flint-area teens have withdrawn guilty pleas in the death of a 32-year-old man killed in 2017 by a rock thrown from an interstate overpass.

WJRT-TV reports that 18-year-old Mark Sekelsky, 16-year-old Trevor Gray, 17-year-old Mikadyn Payne and 17-year-old Alexzander Miller withdrew their pleas Friday to manslaughter charges.

The pleas had been made with the condition they would be sentenced as juveniles, but a judge ruled this summer that they would be sentenced as adults.

Kenneth White of Mt. Morris was riding in a van when a rock smashed through the windshield on Interstate 75 in Vienna Township, 80 miles (130 kilometers) north of Detroit.

Kyle Anger, who was accused of throwing the rock that hit the van, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and awaits sentencing.
