Teens face murder charges after rock dropped from overpass kills man

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton Monday charged five teens with second-degree murder for the death of a motorist killed October 18 by a piece of concrete dropped off an Interstate 75 overpass.

The suspects face up to life in prison, but White Sr. - the victim's father - says that's not enough. He later was pronounced dead at Hurley Medical Center.

The teens were arraigned before Genesee District Judge William H. Crawford II on Tuesday, Oct. 24 on charges of second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit second-degree murder, malicious destruction of property and other felony and misdemeanor charges in connection with the death of Kenneth A. White. Angler is allegedly the one who threw the rock.

Kyle Anger, 17, Mark Sekelsky, 16, Mikadyn Payne, 16, Alexzander Miller, 15, and Trevor Gray, 15, have been charged with second-degree murder.

Police said somebody threw the large rock off of the Dodge Road overpass north of Flint, hitting the van White was riding home in from his construction job.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell confirmed to CNN that based on their investigation, officials believe Kyle Anger, 17, threw the rock that killed White, but all five boys are being charged with the same counts.

The teens are charged as adults.

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

Amthor said the saddest part about White's death is that his youngest child, a 5-year-old boy, won't grow up with his father.

The teens are due back in court on November 2. Anger now is at a county jail, while the four other suspects are being held at a juvenile detention facility. But the incident that took White's life was no accident, authorities said. When they were done, they went to a McDonald's.

White's sister, Alicia Waskoski, told WDIV Local 4 that she couldn't understand "what a person could be thinking to even want to do something like that".

After the arrests, White's fiancee Cagle told ABC12 that she hoped the teenagers realize what they had done, "how many lives they torn apart, and know that what they did was wrong".
