Jackson called 911 and Robinson locked the apartment after the men left, but Kennedy kicked down the door and broke through the deadbolt, according to court records. He then shot Jackson two more times, Robinson testified.
“They could’ve easily left at that time,” Ingham County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney John Dewane told the court. “The only reason (Kennedy) came back in that house, your honor, is because he left a witness alive.”
Robinson said he was shot in the stomach by Kennedy, the State Journal reported.
Alvarez and Kennedy were bound over to circuit court for trial by Ingham County District Judge Kristen Simmons, the newspaper reported.
Attorneys for both men said they opposed Simmons' decision. Toby White, Alvarez's attorney, said his client was not responsible for "any of this outrageous violence," the State Journal reported.
Both men remain in custody at the Ingham County Jail without bail.
