Here is the latest Michigan news from The Associated Press at 3:40 p.m. EST

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A Delaware man charged with plotting to kidnap the governor of Michigan is asking to be released from prison as he awaits court hearings. The News Journal in Delaware reports federal prosecutors say in court filings that Barry G. Croft Jr., is a “violent extremist” and that releasing him would be “unreasonable.”  After Croft was arrested in October, he appeared in Delaware District Court and consented to his case being transferred to Michigan, where his co-defendants are charged. Croft hasn’t been able to appear in Michigan court because of delays in prisoner transfers out of the Philadelphia federal prison where he is jailed. 

SOUTH LYON, Mich. (AP) — Suburban Detroit police say a 19-year-old suspect has been arrested in the slaying of a suburban Detroit teenager gunned down in a shooting that also left his father in critical condition. South Lyon police say the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office assisted in arresting the suspect in Wednesday’s killing of 17-year-old Dylan Stamper and the wounding of 43-year-old Kevin Stamper. Sgt. Chris Faught tells the Detroit Free Press the suspect turned himself in early Friday and could be arraigned on charges by the end of the weekend. No additional information was immediately released about the suspect, who was being held at the Oakland County Jail.

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has turned down an appeal from a man who is challenging mandatory life sentences for people who were 18 at the time of a murder. No-parole sentences are no longer mandatory for teenagers who were under 18. Robin Manning believes people like himself who were 18 should also benefit. The state Supreme Court rejected Manning’s case on procedural grounds. But the addition of a new justice, Elizabeth Welch, could change the outcome if a similar case is filed in the future. Manning has been in prison for more than 35 years for a conviction stemming from his presence during a 1984 homicide.

CALUMET, Mich. (AP) — A judge has ordered the shutdown of a cafe in the Upper Peninsula where customers have been supporting an owner who continues to serve indoor diners. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration got a restraining order against Cafe Rosetta in Calumet, a small town in Houghton County. Bars and restaurants in Michigan are supposed to be limited to carry-out service in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Cafe co-owner Amy Heikkinen, a mother of six, says she can’t afford to limit her business to carry-out orders.
