False Statement Case Will Continue

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:  An Ingham Court judge this morning ordered Kosgar Lado to undergo treatment at a mental health facility in Kalamazoo.  The charges in the case have not been dropped.

Lado will undergo treatment and if found competent will be tried on false statement charges. 

LANSING (WLNS)- A Lansing man charged with making a false statement to police is expected in court Thursday, but some community members are asking for the case to be thrown out.

Police say Kosgar Lado, 21, originally confessed to the murder of Anthony Kye in late June during questioning. Through further investigation, those charges were dropped.

Lado is still being charged with making a false statement. It's a charge, the former executive director of the Prosecuting Attorneys Association says should be thrown out.

According to the association, the law requires "the defendant to knowingly and willfully make any statement to the peace-officer that the person knows is false or misleading."

Although the former director says that wasn't the case for Lado, and tapes of his confession suggest he confessed because he was upset, confused, and afraid.
