All five -- 17 year-old Kyle Anger, 16-year-old Mark Sekelsky, 15-year-old Trevor Gray,  16-year-old Mikadyn Payne and 15-year-old Alexzander Miller -- were charged as adults in the death last fall of a 32-year-old Mt. Morris man on I-75.

Police said least 20 rocks were found on the freeway in Vienna Township, the night of October 18, 2017, after investigators said they were thrown off the Dodge Road overpass.

Kenneth White, 32, was killed when baseball-sized rock (pictured at left) crashed through the windshield of the van he was riding in and struck him in the face. Four other vehicles hit with large rocks or concrete chunks, officials said, but no one else was injured.

The Genesee County Prosecutor's Office told WWJ Newsradio 950 that Sekelsky, Gray,  Payne and Miller -- who all appeared before Genesee County District Court Judge William Crawford on Monday -- are  expected to plead guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter, while additional charges of conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and malicious destruction of property.
will be dropped. 

Anger, who is accused of throwing the six pound rock that killed White, did not appear in court Monday, prosecutors said, but is expected to get the same plea deal. 

All five teens were students at Clio High School.
