MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A man passed out in court moments after being found guilty of murder Thursday morning.
Judge Timothy Hicks found Robert Gee, 31, guilty of murder and three weapons counts in the June 26 shooting death of Jake Rameau. Gee had waived his right to a jury trial and the decision was made solely by Judge Hicks.
After a Muskegon County judge made the guilty verdict defendant Robert Gee covered his face, later leaned forward and rested her head on the table he's been sitting behind during the three-day bench trial.
The judge was several minutes into explaining how he reached his decision when Gee sat up and appeared to begin to faint. Some of Gee's family members were removed from the courtroom.
But Gee didn't faint, he was gesturing and talking in the direction of his family. Then several minutes later, a second possible fainting spell and Gee was carried from the courtroom.
