ST. JOHNS, Mich. (AP) — Two teenagers face arraignment in the robbery-slaying of a Michigan State University student.

Dustyn Frolka was found unconscious Feb. 15 on Interstate 69 in Clinton County’s Bath Township, near Lansing. The sophomore was from Owosso.

Authorities have charged three Saline teens with first-degree murder and armed robbery. They are 18-year-old Samantha Grigg, 18-year-old Tyrel Bredernitz and 16-year-old Brendan Heim.

Bredernitz and Grigg waived their right to a preliminary examination. They’re to be arraigned Monday in circuit court.

Grigg’s lawyer, Ron Zawacki, has said his client is expected to take a plea deal. Prosecutor Charles Sherman says his office is working on a plea deal with Bredernitz.

Heim is undergoing competency proceedings.

The Ann Arbor News says the defendants are accused of beating Frolka and tossing him from a moving vehicle.
