GENESEE COUNTY, MI -- Five teenagers charged in the I-75 rock-throwing death were back in court Thursday.

Kenneth White, 32, was killed just north of Flint on October 18 while riding in a car that was hit by a rock thrown from a highway overpass. Police said five teens tossed a series of rocks from the overpass and then went to eat at a McDonald's.

The five have been charged with second-degree murder, all accused of playing roles in throwing the deadly rock. Kyle Anger, 17; Alexzander Miller, 15; Mark Sekelsky, 16; Mikadyn Payne, 16; and Trevor Gray, 15, were arraigned and pleaded not guilty.

On Thursday, all five appeared before a judge with their lawyers. The judge gave the lawyers until Jan. 11 to get their client a forensic exam to determine competency and criminal responsibility.

The competency evaluation will assess the suspect's current mental state, whereas the assessment of criminal responsibility focuses on their state of mind at the time the alleged offense was committed.

    The neon sign is a caricature of an African-American man, with a porter's cap, with the words Coon Chicken Inn written inside the mouth. The issue came up after a person attending a company Christmas party on Wednesday night at Cook's Garage noticed the sign hanging on the wall.
