Hearing Delayed For Suspect In U-M Med Student’s Death
ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) – A probable cause hearing for a man charged in the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student has been delayed a week.
Shaquille Jones, 21, faces open-murder and home invasion charges in Paul DeWolf’s death. The hearing now will be held Dec. 13.
Jones was arrested last month in North Charleston, S.C. He appeared Thursday in district court in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township.
Jones’ lawyer James Fifelski says the judge granted the adjournment to let the defense examine evidence offered by the prosecution.
Another defendant, 20-year-old Joei Jordan, faces a hearing in the case on Dec. 12, while a third hasn’t yet been charged.
Investigators believe DeWolf was killed in a robbery gone wrong, but have released few details about the case.
DeWolf was found dead July 24 at an off-campus medical fraternity in Ann Arbor. The 25-year-old Schoolcraft native was attending Michigan on an Air Force scholarship.
A 2010 graduate of Grand Valley State University, he was set graduate from the medical school next spring.
