Detroit bouncer's alleged killer to be charged for a second time

DETROIT (WXYZ) - A man accused of killing a Downtown Detroit nightclub bouncer is expected to be charged again for the same crime on Saturday.

Trevon Lavelle Dumas is accused of fatally stabbing Lewis Ferrin in the neck at Club Pandemonium on Sept. 28.

On Thursday, 36th District Court Judge Katherine Hansen dismissed a first-degree murder charge against the 20-year-old.

The judge said prosecutors failed to show probable cause.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy didn't waste time filing another first-degree murder charge for Dumas. The prosecutor's office says they will present additional evidence to prove probable cause in the case.

Dumas was released from jail after having the charges dropped on Thursday. However, he was taken back into custody a few hours later by Detroit Police after the new charges were filed.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office says Dumas' arraignment will take place in 36th District Court sometime Saturday morning.
