Detroit Man Charged with 10 Felonies For Allegedly Shooting Two CMU Students
A man from the Detroit area was charged in Isabella County Wednesday with 10 felonies for allegedly shooting at an apartment complex near Central Michigan University Saturday.
Kenneth Thomas was arrested Tuesday for allegedly shooting two CMU students during a party at Deerfield Village Apartments.
On Wednesday, Thomas was charged in Isabella County with 10 felonies.
Those include two counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting CMU senior Tyler Bunting and CMU quarterback John Keller.
Thomas was also charged with several other firearm felonies, from using a gun to cause bodily harm and firing a rifle while in a home.
At the arraignment hearing, prosecutor David Barberi recommended that Thomas’s bond should be held at $500,000 dollars.
However, 76th District Court Judge Eric Janes decided to double it.
“Obviously the seriousness of the charges does weigh heavily for a heavy bond. The defendant is not from the area, he is a potential flight risk, and for the safety of society, I’m going to continue bond at $1 million cash ensured,” says Judge Janes.
Thomas will be back in court for a probable cause hearing on Thursday, May 6th.
The Isabella County Sheriff’s Office says they are continuing to work on the case and bring charges on another person involved.
