    According to Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski the 22-year-old driver of the pick-up truck, whose name has not been released yet, will face charges of open murder and felony fleeing and eluding in connection with the death of Lansing firefighter Dennis Rodeman.

    "The suspect came by, was upset for whatever reason (and) circled back around" before running into the firefighter, Kraus said.

    The chief added that Rodeman was married two months ago and was expecting his first child. :(


    Idiot who couldn't control his rage, so he plows over a man collecting for a charity. Then, like a coward -- drives away and also attempts to flee on foot.
    Hope they give him the stiffest penalty available !
    To circle around, and then hit Rodeman shows premeditation.
    Imo.

    The 22-year-old driver, who has not been named as of Thursday morning, was arrested after leading police on a chase in his pickup truck.

    Cannot find any more information regarding the suspect.
    My thoughts are that he may have been driving w/o a license and they need to verify his id so the wrong person isn't named ??

    My condolences to Rodeman's loved ones and especially his wife who is expecting their first child !!!

    Taylor is charged with open murder, failing to stop at the scene of an accident when at fault causing death and two counts of fleeing and eluding (third degree).

    Apologies for the links. Not sure how to fix them.

    Never heard of the charge of "open murder" , I'm assuming this is a lesser charge than first or second degree ? Maybe more like manslaughter ?
    If so , that's too bad-- as I think this murder was extremely vicious.

    Why is it always the good,selfless people that are taken? All because someone was offended in some way.

    Twice since 2013, Taylor’s mother, Karen Taylor, petitioned Ingham County Probate Court to involuntarily hospitalize her son for mental health reasons, according to court records.

    The first petition was filed in January 2013 after Taylor was found outside in 30 degree weather with no shirt and after he “threw his cell phone because he was trying to get rid of the past,” according to court records.

    The second petition was filed in July 2014 after Taylor became withdrawn, hadn’t slept in several days, said someone was trying to kill him and would stare at the ceiling for several minutes, according to court records.

    Four psychiatrists evaluated Taylor and diagnosed him with psychosis and bipolar disorder, among other mental illnesses, according to court records.
