GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Two men are facing charges in the case of slain Kentwood teen Mujey Dumbuya.
The Kent County Prosecutor’s Office says 58-year-old Gerald Bennett and 50-year-old Daren Eckford were arrested earlier this month. They are both facing perjury charges in the case.
Dumbuya, 16, was found dead Jan. 28 in a wooded area in Kalamazoo. The East Kentwood High School student had been reported missing four days earlier.
This week, a judge ordered another man accused of sexually assaulting Dumbuya to trial. Quinn James, 42, was previously described by police as a person of interest in her death.
No murder charges have been filed in the case. Bennett and Eckford are both being held on $100,000 bond.
