WARREN, Mich. - Two suspected bow hunters accused of killing a deer in violation of Warren's hunting ban face a four-year felony charge.
Nineteen-year-old Myles Ehret of Royal Oak and 27-year-old William Francis of Riverview are expected to be arraigned in a Macomb County courtroom on Thursday.
Warren police say the men dragged a deer out of a wooded area in the suburban Detroit community on Dec. 21.
Residents in the area have complained about hearing gunshots.
Police found a dead 5-point buck at Francis' Wayne County home, reports The Macomb Daily.
Officers confiscated the deer and expect to donate it to an organization that helps the poor.
Ehret and Francis remain free on a $10,000 bond.
