2 Men Arraigned In Connection With Slain WSU Law Student

ROMULUS (WWJ) – Two men connected to crimes associated with a slain Wayne State University law student have been arraigned in District Court – but not for her murder.

Michael Booker and Robert Windsor appeared in a video arraignment before 34th District Court Magistrate Alan Hindman who entered ‘not guilty’ pleas for both men – neither of whom were charged with the murder of Tiane Brown reports WWJ’s Kathryn Larson.

Forty-one year-old Booker of Detroit was charged with tampering with evidence, larceny and concealing stolen property. And 34-year old Windsor was charged with receiving and concealing stolen property belonging to murdered Wayne State University law student, 33-year-old Brown.

Prosecutors say the two men tampered with evidence and took Brown’s cell phone from her SUV late last month – when it was parked near the Packard Plant – both suspects told the magistrate that they didn’t have jobs or permanent places to live. Windsor went on to tell the magistrate that he was squatting in a home in Highland Park.

Brown was reported missing on Monday and found shot to death in her SUV on Wednesday in a vacant lot near the former Packard plant.

Both defendants are expected back in court for preliminary exams in mid-November.

Police are still searching for Brown’s killer.
