Mistaken Identity Shooting Case Goes To Trial 4-13-2011

Two men accused of gunning down a Delta College student are going to trial.
A preliminary exam was held Tuesday for 35-year-old Steven Rembish and 22-year-old Jonathan Jones. They're accused of killing Sean Stennett in December.
Police said the incident was a case of mistaken identity.
Close friends of Stennett said he died a hero. They told WNEM TV5 that Stennett pushed a woman out of the way and stood in front of the door -- blocking a room full of friends as someone fired eight bullets into the apartment.
Saginaw Police Detective Sgt. Joe Dutoi said Stennett was hit several times. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
The key witness described in court what she saw that December day.
"Sean was laying on his back at that point and had his feet against the door,” said Katie Allen. “I heard the door open and close three times, and he was slamming it shut with his feet."
Stennett's family members were in court wearing shirts and buttons with his picture.
Both men are charged with first-degree murder. The men are still being held without bond.
Rembish is also charged with first-degree murder in the Feb. 19 death of Dawn Ricklefs. Ricklefs, of Saginaw, was killed after someone opened fire through the door of the Corner Lounge Bar, 2100 W. Michigan at Superior on the city’s southwest side.
