He was released on personal recognizance bond of $2,500.

Northrup’s 12-year-old son has been arraigned in juvenile court, charged with careless discharge of a firearm causing death. The charges stem from the Nov. 23 shooting death of Tyler Dunn of Marlette. The fifth grader was shot in the head at the Northrup residence on Howard Road in Marlette Township, while the 2 boys were alone in the house for a sleep-over.

The weapon was a 30-30 lever action rifle. “The rifle was obtained out of a closet, it was loaded,” said Sanilac County Prosecutor James Young last Friday. “It was being exchanged… being handled between the boys when it went off.” READ MORE HERE
