West Michigan teen faces felony terrorism charge


GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A Comstock Park High School junior is facing a felony charge of terrorism for allegedly threatening to rape a female classmate and kill several others.

The Kent County Sheriff's Department says Benjamin Malachino made the alleged threats on March 4th through text messages.  Two of his alleged potential male targets attend Comstock Park, while another is a student at Kenowa Hills High School.

Malachino faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted, and is locked up in the Kent County Jail on 500-thousand dollars bond.
