GENESEE CO., Mich. —  Four teens who pleaded guilty to throwing a rock from an expressway overpass in 2017 that caused the death of a 32-year-old man will have about a month to negotiate new plea agreements with prosecutors.

Trevor Gray, Mark Sekelsky, Alexzander Miller and Mikadyn Payne of Clio had a deadline Tuesday, Aug 20., to decide how they wanted to proceed after Judge Joseph Farah ruled last month that they cannot be sentenced as juveniles.

Defense attorneys for the four suspects obtained a 30-day delay Tuesday, giving them more time to work on plea agreements. The plea deals are due by Sept. 13 and the teens will appear in court on Sept. 24.

The four suspects pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but they have the option to withdraw the plea after Farah's July 23 decision to reject a juvenile sentence.

Kenneth White of Mt. Morris was riding in a van when a rock smashed through a van windshield on Interstate 75 in Vienna Township, 80 miles north of Detroit.

Kyle Anger, who was accused of throwing the rock that hit the van, pleaded guilty in October to second-degree murder.
