Kenneth White was killed after a group of teens threw a rock off of a highway overpass, hitting the auto he was riding in.

A second degree murder charge carries the potential of life in prison. He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

The New York Daily News reports that in addition to the murder charges, they will be tried as adults with the added indictments of malicious destruction of property and conspiracy.

"I just don't understand what a person could be thinking to even want to do something like that", said Alicia Waskoski, White's sister.

Prosecutors have said Kyle Anger was the teen who tossed the rock that killed White.

Anger and Alexzander Miller, 15; Mark Sekelsky, 16; Mikadyn Payne, 16; and Trevor Gray, 15, were arraigned Tuesday and pleaded not guilty, according to Gray's attorney, Erwin Meiers.

Police said somebody threw the large rock off of the Dodge Road overpass north of Flint, hitting the van White was riding home in from his construction job.

"We have a family here", Genesee County Undersferiff Chris Swanson said. After White was hit, his friend had to maneuver around other cars that had been damaged from the rocks before he could pull over himself and help White, according to CNN. "I've buried my mother, my father, and my oldest brother in the last four years and this is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life".

It was on October 18 around 8:30 p.m. when the victim Kenneth White and his friend were driving home from work in a van.

In coming to the decision on second-degree murder charges, Leyton said on Monday that MI law doesn't call for first-degree murder charges in this case.

"I think if there's any warning both David and I could give, it's telling young people you make a bad decision you could be spending the rest of your life in prison". They still get phone calls from their parents.

Pickell previously said this case goes beyond teens joking around. "My son don't get none of that no more". As previously reported by CrimeOnline, the five teens will be tried as adults in a MI court of law.
