DETROIT (AP) -- Four men accused of attacking a suburban motorist who
accidentally struck a 10-year-old boy on Detroit's east side are
expected to face trial in August.
Wonzey Saffold, Latrez Cummings, Bruce Wimbush Jr. and James Davis
were arraigned Monday in Wayne County Circuit Court on charges of
assault with intent to murder. Not guilty pleas were entered on their
Saffold and Cummings are scheduled to stand trial Aug. 18, followed by Wimbush and Davis on Aug. 25.
A judge last week ordered the men -- ages 17 to 30 -- to stand trial
in the brutal April 2 beating of 54-year-old Steve Utash, after he hit
the boy with his vehicle.
A 16-year-old boy faces a June trial in juvenile court on ethnic intimidation and assault charges.
Utash remains hospitalized. The 10-year-old boy suffered a leg injury.
