Rock thrown from overpass kills man; 5 teens charged

Teens denied bond in rock toss that killed I-75 driver

Five Michigan teens will be charged for dropping a rock from an overpass and killing a man, police said.

All five teens could face life in prison for the second-degree murder charge. He later was pronounced dead at Hurley Medical Center.

The two men met three years ago through Kenneth White Sr., White's father and Amthor's best friend. Pictured is 17-year-old Kyle Anger. They are Kyle Anger, 17; Mark Sekelsky, 16; Mikadyn Payne, 16; Alexzander Miller, 15; and Trevor Gray, 15.

At least 20 rocks were found on Interstate 75, including one weighing nearly 20lb, and at least four vehicles were damaged.

Citing the seriousness of the crime, Judge William Crawford refused to grant bond to the defendants, who were arraigned in Genesee County District Court on second-degree murder and other charges in the death of Ken White, 32, of Mount Morris.

White was struck in the face and head, and the rock ricocheted to his chest, causing him to lose consciousness, according to Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell.

"To propel the size of boulder down from the Dodge Road overpass to a 70 miles per hour vehicle that's headed southbound, you ought to know - a reasonable person would know - that that is creating a high risk of great bodily harm, or in this case, death", said David Leyton, the county prosecutor, at a news conference on Monday.

Investigators believe the suspects also threw tires and auto engine parts over another overpass nearby and damaged several other vehicles.

"I've buried my mother, my father, and my oldest brother in the last four years".

It was on October 18 around 8:30 p.m. when the victim Kenneth White and his friend were driving home from work in a van.

"I think there's been a public rush to accept that these kids are bad, that they're nearly animalistic, and they should be punished as such", attorney Frank Manley said. But the incident that took White's life was no accident, authorities said.

Officials say the suspects went to McDonald's after the incident.

Aimee Cagle, White's fiancée, told ABC 12 their son has been asking for his father.
