The Ypsilanti Township man accused of fatally shooting a co-worker last month had his preliminary examination adjourned in the 14A-1 District Court Tuesday.

The examination for Leonard Ware, 34, was postponed until Nov. 30 as the prosecution and defense await the autopsy results, according to Steve Hiller of the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office.

Ware is accused of shooting and killing 29-year-old Bhagavan Allen, of Superior Township, following a dispute at Marsh Plating Corp., where they both worked. Allen died following the shooting at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 on South Grove Street near South Street in Ypsilanti.

Ware is charged with open murder, carrying a concealed weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm and being in possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Ware continues to be held in the Washtenaw County Jail with no bond.

The guy was alive, he was shot, and then he was dead. What do you need an autopsy for?

If the guy is found with illegal drugs in his tox screen than the defense with use that for the killers benefit, saying the victim was the aggressor..

Try again. Eight tenths of a mile from Downtown Ypsi. Maybe you need to look at a map and EDUCATE YOURSELF. That is the City of Ypsilanti. Ok, now you have been educated.
