Disruption in court after killing spree suspect seeks new lawyer – Story

– A man accused of going on a murderous crime spree in Wayne and Oakland Counties back in February caused a disruption in court after expressing dissatisfaction with his attorney.

Vernest Griffin, 45, is charged in both a shooting in Taylor and Pontiac that left two people dead. 

In the Taylor shooting, police say Griffin walked into BSD Trucking with a semiautomatic weapon and started shooting, striking and killing 60-year-old Keith Kitchen of Garden City. He was charged with first-degree murder, carjacking, armed robbery and felony firearm.
