Kyle Anger, 17; Mark Sekelsky, 16; Mikadyn Payne, 16; Trevor Gray, 15; and Alexander Miller, 15, are all from Clio, Michigan.
Each are charged with second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and six felony counts of malicious destruction of property.
Police said the teenagers damaged several cars the night of Oct. 18 when they threw rocks off at least two overpasses in Vienna Township.
Kenneth Andrew White, 32, of Mount Morris Township, was in a van Wednesday heading south on I-75 when the windshield was struck by a large rock in Vienna Township, police said. The rock went through the windshield and hit White, who was in the passenger seat. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Sheriff Robert Pickell said he wasn't willing to call the incident a prank, since it resulted in a death.
"It's not a prank," Pickell said. "It's second-degree murder. I don't think anybody's laughing. You make a bad decision, you could be spending the rest of your life in prison. This is not a prank."
