Homicide

2 charged in 8-year-old Detroit boy's slaying scheduled to appear at preliminary examination

A man and teenager are scheduled to return to court in the death of an 8-year-old boy who was shot while sleeping inside his Detroit home.

A preliminary hearing to determine if the case goes to trial is Wednesday afternoon in 36th District Court for 28-year-old Calvin Mosby and 17-year-old Devaunte Starks.

They're charged with first-degree murder in the July 30 slaying of Jakari Pearson. The bullet that hit him penetrated a wall at the Brewster Homes public housing project. Jakari was to enter the fourth grade this year.

Prosecutors have described it as a retaliatory shooting. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says Mosby formerly dated Jakari's mother and went to the housing project to threaten her the previous day.

Mosby and Starks also face attempted murder and firearms charges.
