Man mistakes neighbor's dog for coyote, shoots pet

NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) – A 61-year-old Muskegon County man is accused of shooting his neighbors' dog with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Prelim for Muskegon Heights murder suspect delayed

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Lawyers representing a man accused of killing four Muskegon Heights women say they need more time to review the case.

Leon Means, 61, is charged with killing Judy Bushman and Anna Lawson on October 14. Means also faces separate charges in the 1989 murders of his estranged wife and her mother.

Driver struck on I-96 while moving dead deer

FRUITPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A man trying to drag a dead deer from I-96 was struck by another driver Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 7:40 a.m. in the westbound lanes near Sternberg Road.

Police believe the 50-year-old man struck the deer and stopped to remove it from the highway so other drivers wouldn't run over it. He was then hit by a vehicle driven by an 80-year-old Muskegon County man.

Police found another deer at the edge of the road in the same location; they say removing an obstruction from the road is always dangerous, even for emergency workers.
