A Kentwood man will be sentenced later this month for murder.

He then stole their Cadillac before setting it on fire in a parking lot in Wyoming. He is charged with two counts of murder, home invasion and felony use of a firearm. He is currently being lodged at the Kent County Jail with a million-dollar bond. His hearing is scheduled for July 24th.
