Five Genesee County teens have been charged with 2nd degree murder after throwing a rock off of a I-75 overpass.  The rock that was thrown struck a car and killed 32-year-old Kenneth Andrew White.

Kenneth left behind a 5-year-old son.  The mother of his son said this: "He took away a child's father, and the love of my life, his stupid act took away a life."

The five teenagers are accused of throwing multiple rocks off the overpass with a few weighing up to 20 pounds.  The rock that struck and killed Kenneth, weighed 6 pounds.  Four other cars were struck by rocks the same day.

Police and prosecutors are stressing that this act is not to be considered a prank and instead "It was a willful and wanton act that resulted in someone's death."  The incident is also considered to be premeditated.

According to Detroit's WDIV Local 4:  "All five teens were charged with second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and six felony counts of malicious destruction of property."
