One Of Four Waives Key Hearing In Detroit Mob Attack

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - A 17-year-old charged with attempted murder in the beating of a Detroit-area motorist has waived his right to a probable cause hearing and will move his case directly to trial court.

Bruce Wimbush Jr. waived the hearing Monday. The hearing continued for three other men also charged with attempted murder. Steve Utash's family is sitting in the courtroom's front row.

The 54-year-old Utash spent days in a coma and remains hospitalized after the April 2 beating. He was attacked while trying to help a 10-year-boy whom he struck with his pickup truck.

The other defendants are 19-year-old Latrez Cummings, 24-year-old James Davis and 30-year-old Wonzey Saffold.

Separately, a 16-year-old boy is charged in Juvenile Court with assault and ethnic intimidation in the case. He's black; Utash is white.
