2 arraigned in fatal shooting of retired deputy

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A 17-year-old and 18-year-old face murder charges in the shooting death of a retired Genesee County sheriff's deputy during a burglary at his Flint home.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton says in a release that Ryan Deville of Mount Morris Township and Aaron Robinson of Flint were arraigned Tuesday in 68th District Court.

Lonnie Thomas was shot several times in the head Friday when the 76-year-old surprised intruders who had removed an air conditioner from a window. Money, guns and a truck were taken. Thomas' body was found Saturday.

The defendants were arrested after 1 of them was caught in the truck.

Deville and Robinson also are charged with safe-breaking, armed robbery and carjacking.

The Associated Press could not determine Tuesday afternoon if they had attorneys.
