Man sentenced in killing that led to EMU president's ouster
(2008-05-07)
(wgvu) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A Southfield man convicted of
first-degree murder in the slaying of a fellow Eastern Michigan
University student will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Twenty-one-year-old Orange Taylor III apologized to his family
and victim Laura Dickinson's family before Washtenaw Circuit Court
Judge Archie Brown announced the sentence Wednesday.
The case led to the firing of university President John Fallon
and other school officials.
The U.S. Education Department fined Eastern Michigan $357,500
after finding it violated a federal act requiring schools to
accurately disclose campus security information.
The university says it paid Dickinson's family $2.5 million in a
settlement but did not admit wrongdoing.
