HARRISVILLE, Mich. — Three individuals involved in an assault in Glennie that left one man with life changing injuries have been sentenced.
In January of 2019, 32–year–old Michael Keating recruited his two friends, Quinton McMurren and Kayley Duel, both 28, for a robbery. The trio devised a plan and drove to the victim’s residence. Upon arrival, Duel convinced the victim, Kenneth McMullen that she was having car trouble and needed his help. When he went outside he was ambushed by both Keating and McMurren, and was struck in the head with a metal and wooden object multiple times.
McMullen was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Saginaw for an extensive head injury. These injuries required surgery and have had long–lasting and life-changing effects.
After an almost year long investigation, authorities made the connection between Keating and McMullen, leading to the arrest of the three individuals. Duel later testified that it was their intent to tie up the McMullens and steal money and tools to sell for drug money.
Both Keating and McMurren pleaded guilty to four charges including breaking and entering and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Keating was sentenced to 12 years and 8 months to 30 years. McMurren was sentenced to 11 to 30 years.
Kayley Duel also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve one year in the Alcona County Jail.
