Hearing Planned In EMU Player’s Robbery-Slaying

View Comments

PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A hearing is scheduled for two young Detroit men charged in the robbery and fatal shooting of an Eastern Michigan University football player.

Demarius Reed of Chicago was killed in Ypsilanti at his off-campus apartment building in October. Twenty-year-olds Kristopher Pratt and Ed Thomas are charged with open counts of murder.

A probable cause hearing is scheduled to resume on Monday afternoon to decide whether there’s enough hearing to send the men to trial.

Testimony at the hearing was first heard last month. The case is being heard in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township.
