A man charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a Michigan State Police trooper has waived another key hearing in the court cases against him.
The Muskegon Chronicle reports Eric Knysz on Monday waived his right to a preliminary hearing on gun, assault and car-theft charges in Manistee County. The charges stem from the aftermath of Trooper Paul Butterfield's death.
Butterfield was killed during a traffic stop last month in Mason County's Sherman Township.
Knysz also is charged with murder of a peace officer and other crimes in Mason County. He waived his preliminary hearing in that case last week. Knysz' wife, Sarah Knysz, also waived her right to a hearing on different felony charges in Mason County.
Her car-theft hearing Monday in Manistee County was delayed.
