KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A man charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of five bicyclists in southwestern Michigan has made his first court appearance.
Charles Pickett Jr. heard the charges Friday via video from jail, three days after a group of bicyclists was mowed down by a pickup truck in Kalamazoo County’s Cooper Township.
Pickett will have a court-appointed attorney unless he decides to hire his own. He says he&8217;s unemployed and takes care of his father in the Battle Creek area.
Besides the five deaths, four bicyclists were injured. One was in serious condition while the other three were fair or good Friday.
