Young Kent Co. killer marks 21st birthday as free man

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Kent County man who killed his mother’s boyfriend when he was 13 years old is a free man.

Keishawn Mann marked his 21st birthday Wednesday with one final review hearing, at which the judge ruled he was ready to be released.

Mann pleaded guilty to killing 35-year-old Jermelle Stokes, who was dating his mother at the time of the February 2010 shooting.
