Hearing For Officer In Pregnant Woman’s Killing

SAGINAW (AP) – A judge has scheduled an Oct. 3 hearing to decide whether a Michigan police officer should stand trial on accusations he strangled a pregnant woman whose body was found near his department’s gun range in Saginaw County.

Thirty-six-year-old Buena Vista Township Officer Kenneth Bluew is being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder and felony firearm possession, as well as a charge related to the death of the unborn child.

Authorities aren’t commenting on any relationship between Bluew and 32-year-old Jennifer Webb, who was killed Aug. 30.

Saginaw County District Judge Christopher Boyd on Monday postponed a preliminary examination for Bluew so new defense lawyer Rod O’Farrell can receive and study case records.
