Snyder Signs Bill Prompted by 2011 Eaton County Murder

Posted:

Governor Rick Snyder signed 31 new bills on Wednesday, including one triggered from an Eaton County double murder in 2011.

The new law will require those convicted of a felony and released from county jail for work or school to wear an electronic monitoring device. It will also require verification that the person is employed or enrolled before the release.

38-year-old Christopher Perrien was found guilty in a 2011 double murder after being released from jail. A judge gave the okay for him to leave and go to work. A few weeks later, officials says Perrien shot and killed Terri and Michael Greene at their home in Delta Township.

Senator Rick Jones sponsored the bill.

This signing comes among 30 others, including Erin's Law, which helps strengthen protections against sexual abuse of children. It will provide more resources in schools to teach on the topic.
