One of three suspects in murder of Dustyn Frolka to plead guilty






Samantha Grigg, one of three charged with murder in the death of marketing sophomore Dustyn Frolka, is expected to plead guilty, according to reports from the Lansing State Journal.

Grigg, along with Tyrel Bredernitz and Brendan Heim, face life in prison on murder and armed robbery.

Frolka was found partially clothed and in respiratory distress on I-69 at about 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 15 near the East Lansing ramp in Bath Township. He was taken to Sparrow Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after.

Grigg’s attorney Ron Zawacki told the Lansing State Journal that Grigg is expected to enter a plea on April 28 in the Clinton County Circuit Court.

“(Prosecutors) are not alleging she was involved in any type of assaultive conduct . . .(her) involvement is a lot less than the other individuals,” Zawacki said.
