News and quick-hit commentary from around mid-Michigan ... from the Morning Sun.

Monday, August 21, 2006

Former Central Michigan University football player Jerry Seymour is preparing to leave the Isabella County Jail as his onetime teammate, James King, begins a three-month sentence for his role in the beating death of Flint man Demarcus Graham in July 2004.

Isabella County Trial Judge William Ervin on Monday sentenced Seymour to six months in jail and five months' probation but credited the former Chippewa tailback from Miramar, Fla. for time served and suspended the final month with a provision that Seymour must complete his probation satisfactorily.

Ervin later sentenced King to six months in jail but suspended three of those months and gave King credit for eight days served.

King and Seymour pleaded guilty in July to attempted assault with a dangerous weapon during their murder trial.

The two had been charged with second-degree murder, or in the alternative, involuntary manslaughter or assault with intent do do great bodily harm less than murder.
