My heart goes out to the families of these two young men. May God bless them in their grief.
Rest in peace, Jacob and Jourdan.
A hearing will resume Monday to decide whether two men will stand trial for first-degree murder in the killing of two suburban Detroit teens in 2012.
The bodies of 17-year-old Jourdan Bobbish and 18-year-old Jacob Kudla were found in a field on Detroit's east side. The Westland residents had been missing for five days.
A probable cause hearing began Wednesday for Fredrick Young of Detroit and Ferlando Hunter of Jackson. Detroit District Judge Michael Wagner will decide whether to send the case to trial in Wayne County Circuit Court.
The first witness, Brandon Hall, testified that he was at a friend’s home on Algonac the night of July 22 when his cousin Young, nicknamed Lock, and Hunter, known as Lando, arrived.
Through sometimes claiming to not remember details of a night two years ago, Hall provided an account of the defendants arriving at the home uninvited, followed a short time later by “two white boys.”
Hall’s memory was refreshed with a statement made to police in April recounting Young and Hunter robbing the Westland teens at gunpoint and forcing them to strip to their underwear before taking them outside into the trunk of a car.
A Detroit judge has ordered two men to trial on first-degree murder charges in the drug-related killing of two suburban Detroit teens in 2012...
On Wednesday, District Judge Michael Wagner ruled that there's enough evidence to try 25-year-old Fredrick K. Young of Detroit and 23-year-old Ferlando D. Hunter of Jackson.
The Young and Hunter are scheduled to appear in Wayne County Circuit Court for arraignment July 23.
Two men are expected to be arraigned ahead of their trial in the drug-related killing of two suburban teens whose bodies were found in an eastside Detroit field...
Less than two weeks later, 62-year-old John Villneff was shot to death during a home invasion on Detroit’s west side.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Hunter was sentenced in March to life in prison for Villneff’s murder. Young also faces sentencing Wednesday for home invasion in that case.
Jury selection is underway in the trial of two men charged in the drug-related killings of two Westland teens in 2012.
Fredrick K. Young, 25, and Felando D. Hunter, 23, are accused of robbing, torturing, imprisoning and killing Jacob Kudla, 18, and Jourdan Bobbish, 17.
Walking within about 10 feet, Kokenos said he saw the bodies and then ran back to their truck to call 911. Due to the decomposition, he said he thought the bodies were two black males. Kudla and Bobbish were both white. The teens were identified by dental records.
"It looked like they had been shot on their knees and fell forward on their faces," said Kokenos, who got out of the witness stand to demonstration the position of the bodies...
"Basically, it looked like an execution," said Hart, who was the officer in charge of the crime scene. "They were on their knees and slumped over. It was a very overgrown area. It is very desolate. There is no house or business with a line of sight to the scene."
http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/in..._of_killi.htmlA jury on Thursday convicted Fredrick Kyle Young, 26, and Felando Hunter, 23, each of two counts each of first-degree murder and felony murder; one count each of torture, armed robbery, unlawful imprisonment and felonious use of a firearm.
The teens had been missing about a week before their bodies were discovered by authorities and it's believed they came to Detroit in an attempt to purchase drugs.
Two men convicted in the 2012 slayings of two suburban Detroit teens, who authorities say went into the city to buy drugs, were sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole.
Fredrick Young, 26 and Felando Hunter, 24, were arrested last year. They were convicted in December of first-degree murder, torture and armed robbery in the deaths of 17-year-old Jourdan Bobbish and 18-year-old Jacob Kudla of Westland.
Detroit man who murdered two white teens declares ‘black lives matter’ during sentencing
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner,” he said. “And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood.
“And in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say ‘hands up don’t shoot,’” he said, raising his hands in the air. “Black lives matter — that’s it your honor.”
