Man convicted of murder passes out after verdict


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.

Men of Color Read group encourages picking up a book


MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A group of men in Muskegon Heights took time away from their busy days to read to school kids on Thursday.

Around 30 men from the group Men of Color Read were at Edgewood Elementary. They visit the school once a month to mentor students and encourage them to appreciate reading. The hope is it will help prevent them from dropping out of school, says the group's Jon Covington.

"The kids in classrooms and urban communities need to see men that look like them," Covington said. "Somewhere around two percent or less of the teachers in America are black men, so the kids in the classroom do not see positive black male images on a regular basis."

The group also raised money and collected donations to buy the school 100 new computers. Students will start using the new technology next week.
