Inmate Charged in 2009 Kalamazoo Township Murder

Murder Case

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo Township detectives think they have cracked a two year old murder case.  It was two years ago this week that the body of 31-year-old Marcel Hughley was found dead in a car parked where Westnedge Dead ends at the U.S. 131 business loop in Kalamazoo Township.  He had been shot three times.

After two years of investigation, a judge has now issued a murder warrant for Julius Demario Rolland.  They aren’t saying just yet how he is connected to the crime, just that they think he is responsible.  The warrant charges him with open murder, felony murder, and a gun charge.

Chief Tim Bourgeois says Rolland is already doing time in the Michigan Corrections System for Armed robbery, home invasion and various gun charges.  Rolland will be taken back to Kalamazoo to face the new charges Tuesday.
