Tyson bound over to circuit court for murder charges

GRAND BLANC — A preliminary exam was held last week for Jacquelyne Tyson, accused in the murder of two employees of her rental agent in July 2016. Tyson was in treatment for several months at a state forensic center in Ann Arbor and twice previously found incompetent to stand trial.

A date has not been set, but there was sufficient evidence found to bind her over to the 7th Circuit Court for trial. According to reports from that preliminary exam, Lawana Roman testified she saw Tyson with a gun in her hand pointed at victim Lyric Work and heard screaming.

Roman added Tyson spoke her name and said “I'm not here for you”. Work, 20, who was pregnant at the time of the shooting, died July 29, 2016, following an emergency cesarean operation which delivered her baby girl Marley 7 weeks early on July 26, the day of the shooting.

Her co-worker, Tamara Johnson, 45, died at the scene. — P.S.
