Murder trial ordered in punch of soccer referee

LIVONIA (WKZO) -- The 36-year-old man charged with throwing a punch that led to the death of soccer referee John Bieniewicz in Livonia will stand trial for second-degree murder. The case against Bassel Saad was bound over to Wayne County Circuit Court Thursday after two days of testimony in a preliminary exam.

Players from two teams described how the punch landed in the neck area as Bieniewicz was pulling a red card from his pocket to eject Saad from a game last month. The defense called it a heat of the moment reaction and argued the charge is excessive.
