CENTREVILLE, MI (WTVB) - The prosecution in the David Locey murder case will need a second day to lay out the evidence against Andy Brown. Locey was a Certified Public Accountant who employed Brown at an office just outside of Sturgis. Office staff, clients and investigators testified during the first day of his preliminary hearing Wednesday that they had begun getting complaints and threats from clients alleging that money was missing and their accounts had been mishandled by Brown. Locey confronted him about embezzlement, and the next day, October 2nd, he was found in his office by his secretary, shot to death.
In the 911 call, Tammy Brunner mentions Brown as the likely suspect. More testimony in St. Joseph County District Court in Centreville is scheduled for today. The gun has not been recovered and most of the evidence so far has been circumstantial. A judge is being asked to bind Brown over to stand trial for murder.
