Prosecutor: Don’t Dismiss Murder Charge Against Ex-Cop
Becker said in court documents filed Tuesday that the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding probable cause to bind Schurr over on the charge. Therefore, Schurr’s request to dismiss the charge should be denied, the prosecutor said.
Kent County Circuit Judge Christina Elmore will hear both sides’ arguments during a motion hearing scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Feb. 2.
The case is currently set to go to trial on March 13.
Attorneys for Lyoya’s family have filed a separate civil lawsuit against Schurr and the City of Grand Rapids.
