Second suspect arraigned in death of Hubbard Hall freshman
A second man has been arraigned in the March death of a Hubbard Hall freshman.
On the morning of March 19, 2012, Michigan State University Police responded to South Hubbard Hall after receiving a call from an MSU student who said her roommate was unresponsive.
An 18-year-old MSU student was found dead, and investigators quickly determined alcohol appeared to be a factor in her death. Since she was under the legal drinking age, MSU Police began investigating how she had acquired the alcohol.
MSU Police sent a warrant request to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office. The case was reviewed, charges were issued and Dishon Tyran Ambrose was arraigned July 11 in East Lansing’s 54-B District Court before Judge David Jordon on the charge of selling or furnishing to a minor causing death, a 10-year felony.
Ambrose a 19-year old man from Detroit, was picked up by MSU Police on an extradition order issued by the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office. He was located in San Antoinio and returned to Michigan. Ambrose is being held in the Ingham County Jail on a $250,000 cash or surety bond. He has a pretrial appearance set for 8:30 a.m. July 17 before Jordon, and a preliminary examination at 1 p.m. July 20 before Judge Richard D. Ball at the 54-B District Court.
Previously in June, Marquez Dominique Cannon of Eastpointe, Mich., was arraigned in East Lansing’s 54-B District Court on the following charges: count one of criminal sexual conduct injury to an incapactiated victim; a second count of selling or furnishing to a minor causing death; and a third count of criminal sexual conduct force or coercion.
As the criminal prosecution phase moves forward, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victim’s family and friends at this time of loss. Staff from MSU’s Counseling Center are available to speak to students about the tragedy.
