St. Joseph County District Judge Jeffrey Middleton said he received a complaint Thursday charging Andy Brown, 36, with murder shortly after getting an order to dismiss the embezzlement charge.

The Kalamazoo man was arraigned Thursday in Centreville on first-degree murder and gun charges. Middleton ordered him held on a $2 million bond. A preliminary examination is scheduled Oct. 31.

David Locey was found shot to death Oct. 2 in his accounting office in Sherman Township, near Sturgis.

Defense lawyer Michael Hills said he learned about the murder charge Thursday after Brown had been held 14 days in the embezzlement case.



I hope this case will be solved. The victims should have justice on this. - Charles Brennan
