Authorities announced murder charges at a news conference Monday afternoon in connection with the recent death of a 32-year-old man killed when a rock was thrown off an overpass on I-75 in Vienna Township.
Kenneth Andrew White, 32, of Mount Morris Township, was in a van Wednesday heading south on I-75 when the windshield was struck by a large rock in Vienna Township, police said. The rock went through the windshield and hit White, who was in the passenger seat. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Authorities said four other cars were struck with large rocks and were waiting for police to arrive when the van was hit. No other injuries were reported.
Officials said it’s been an intense homicide investigation. They are asking for information from anyone who has heard anything about the incident.
Sources said that officials were directed to a person from a social media tip. On Friday, authorities confirmed several teens were in custody and being questioned.
All five teens were charged with second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and six felony counts of malicious destruction of property.
