STANTON, Mich. (WOOD) — Two of three people have pleaded guilty to a carjacking that was part of crime spree that also included a stabbing and assault.

On Aug. 14, Daniel Leussenkamp pleaded guilty in Montcalm County Circuit Court to carjacking and being a second-time habitual offender. Sentencing is set for Oct. 9.

Also on Aug. 14, Kimberly Wonsey pleaded guilty to the carjacking. She is due back in court on Sept. 25 for a hearing. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

The third suspect in the crime spree, Kevin Seely, waived a preliminary hearing in August in the carjacking case. He’s expected back in court on Sept. 11.

After robbing and stabbing a man at a Wyoming motel in July, authorities say, the three carjacked a woman in Greenville, threatening her with a screwdriver, and then drove to the Detroit area where they assaulted a woman.

Leussenkamp and Wonsey were arrested a few days later at an apartment complex near Grand Rapids. Seely was arrested the same day in New York state.

Leussenkamp still faces charges in Kent County for the stabbing. A status conference on that case is set for Sept. 10.

All three suspects remain in jail.
