Prelim set for alleged Ishpeming killer
MARQUETTE, MI-- A preliminary hearing is set for an Ishpeming man accused of shooting and killing his roommate after an argument last week.
Jack Carpenter, 52, allegedly shot David Meyer, 29, with a handgun in a house on North Second Street Friday afternoon. Officials say Carpenter then threatened a witness to the shooting and prevented the man from leaving the house. The witness eventually escaped and contacted police.
Carpenter is charged with homicide—open murder, unlawful imprisonment, assault with a dangerous weapon, and a felony firearms charge. His preliminary exam is scheduled for June 21 in Marquette District Court.
