A former Michigan State Police trooper charged with second-degree murder waived his preliminary hearing today. 

His case is now bond over to Wayne County Circuit Court. 
 
Mark Bessner faces a preliminary hearing in Wayne County District Court. 

Bessner is charged in the death of 15-year-old Damon Grimes. 

Prosecutors say he tased Grimes last August while the teen was riding an ATV, causing him to fatally crash.
