Grand Traverse Co Prosecutor Appeals Resentence of Convicted Killer

The Grand Traverse County prosecutor is appealing a court’s decision to resentence Robert Schwander, convicted of killing a Traverse City Teen.

In May, we told you the court of appeals ruled that Schwander’s second degree murder sentence went above sentencing guidelines.

He was convicted of stabbing Carley Lewis to death in 2011 when he was 17.

The most recent ruling meant Schwander would be resentenced for a fourth time.

The prosecutor is asking the Michigan Supreme Court to allow the 40 to 70 year sentence.
