The man accused of shooting a Detroit police sergeant is facing new charges following the sergeant's death.

Marquise Cromer, 21, is expected in court Wednesday morning for arraignment on the amended charges and a probable cause hearing. Cromer was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, but was reportedly being uncooperative in the case.

That hearing was adjourned and rescheduled for this morning at 10:30 a.m.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy upgraded the assault with intent to murder charge to first degree murder in the killing of Detroit Police Sgt. Kenneth Stiel.

Sgt. Steil passed away Saturday at St. John hospital from complications after being shot while chasing a fugitive last Monday.

The 46-year-old sergeant leaves behind a wife and two little boys.

Just days ago, he talked about making a quick recovery and returning back to the force where he had spent the last 20 years, most recently having worked in special ops in the 9th precinct.
