JACKSON, MI – The Michigan Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday from attorneys fighting over whether or not a jury should be allowed to hear that two teens shot and killed in Springport were on an alleged crime spree the morning of their deaths.
Attorney George Lyons presented his argument before the court, Feb. 6, on behalf of Tracy Lawrence, who killed the two teens while they attempted to break into his truck more than two years ago.
“They were not there selling cookies, they were there to commit a felony,” Lyons said. “The jury has the right to know what brought them to that house.”
Lawrence, 54, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one count of possessing a firearm in the commission of a felony in the shooting deaths of Hunter Lentz and Matthew McMillen, both 18, on June 8, 2016.
Lawrence’s trial has been on hold since prosecutors

A group of violent robbers who were allegedly brutalizing Los Angelinos in a series of cellphone robberies has been busted … TMZ has learned.

The men would then allegedly point a rifle at them and commit the robberies. We’re told some of the victims were attacked — struck in the face with the butt of the rifle.
