Kalamazoo accountant charged in Sturgis murder


A southwest Michigan certified public accountant that had been facing an embezzlement charge has now been charged with murder in the death of a 70-year-old colleague.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office says 36-year-old Andy Brown is charged in the shooting death of David Locey.   The Kalamazoo man was arraigned Thursday in Centreville.  MLive.com reports that Brown is being held on a $2 million bond and a preliminary examination is scheduled Oct. 31.

The prosecutor's office says the embezzlement case will need more investigation before it can go to trial.  That charge has been dismissed, at least for now. 

Authorities are asking that anyone with information on Locey's death or the suspected embezzlement should contact St. Joseph County Det/Sgt. Palmer at 269-467-9045 ext. 232.
