DETROIT (AP) - Three men charged in the assault and carjacking of popular Detroit pastor and gospel singing icon Marvin Winans appeared in court today, but their preliminary hearing was adjourned.
Twenty-year-old Detroit residents Montoya Givens and Christopher Moorehead and 18-year-old Brian K. Young of Clinton Township are charged with carjacking, unarmed robbery and conspiracy.
