ANN ARBOR, Mich. (CBS) — The family of a Chicago man murdered last fall in Michigan will be in court this week in Ann Arbor, as one of the accused killers goes on trial.
WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports Demarius Reed was 20 years old when he was shot and killed in the entrance to his apartment building near Eastern Michigan University.
Reed had been a star on the Simeon Academy football team, and played for EMU.
“He was living out his dream. That’s what makes it really difficult, because he was doing all the right things; trying to do things the right way,” said his father, Carl Reed, who is in Ann Arbor for the trial of a 21-year-old man charged with murder and robbery in Demarius Reed’s death.
