Man's Trial In College Student's Slaying Delayed

Posted: Updated:
ST. JOHNS, Mich. (AP) - The trial for one of three people charged in the slaying of a 19-year-old Michigan State University student has been delayed.

A Clinton County judge on Monday set Sept. 17 as the trial date for 18-year-old Tyrel Bredernitz.

Dustyn Frolka of Owosso was beaten and robbed Feb. 15. He jumped from an SUV in Bath Township near Lansing and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Bredernitz and 16-year-old Brendan Heim are charged with murder and unarmed robbery. Both are from Saline.

The Ann Arbor News reports that Bredernitz' delay could allow both trials to run at the same time.

Samantha Grigg was sentenced last month to up to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter and unarmed robbery. She agreed to testify against Bredernitz and Heim.
