  • Toledo teens enter denial to murder charge in sandbag killing

New information Thursday morning on the four teenagers charged in the death of a MI man who was hit by a sandbag while riding in a vehicle on I-75 in Toledo last week.

Lori Olender, Deputy Chief of the Lucas County Prosecutor's Office, said that the four teens - three 13-year-olds and one 14-year-old - were charged with murder and two counts of vehicular vandalism for the December 19 incident in which Marquise Byrd was fatally injured. The 22-year-old suffered blunt-force trauma to his head and neck, and later died as a result of his injuries.

"Detectives determined the falling sandbag was not an accident, but a deliberate act and probable cause to charge the juveniles was established", the department said in a release.

King said she'd like to see the teens charged as adults ― something the district attorney's office has reportedly indicated it does not plan to do. Byrd's friend, who was behind the wheel, was frantic as she called for help on the side of the freeway.

It's not the first time teens have been charged with murder in such a case.




"Something hit my vehicle, it hit my friend, and he is not moving".

"OK, you don't know what hit him?" the dispatcher asked. They're accused of throwing objects off the interstate bridge.

"No, my windshield is, like, smashed up".

"My client just wanted to express his remorse for the victim and his family", Denise Stollings told the court.

Byrd, the father of a 1-year-old boy, was reportedly engaged to be married. The teens now face charges of murder, felony vehicular vandalism and misdemeanor vehicular vandalism. In October, a MI judge denied bond for five teenagers accused of throwing a 6-pound rock off an overpass near Flint, killing Kenneth White Jr., 32. "And the consequences for these kids that think it's fun and games and a prank, they're gonna go to prison".
