Sentencing rescheduled for man who testified against break-in crew
The 25-year-old Lima Township man who testified against three members of a break-in crew had his sentencing rescheduled for May 8, according to court records.
Steven Colwell was originally scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 20.
Colwell is expected to receive two to 15 years in prison in exchange for his testimony. He pleaded guilty to five counts of second-degree home invasion.
Colwell testified that he broke into houses and stole numerous items along with Jeffrey Arthur Schuh, 54; his son Jeffrey Aron Schuh, 20, both of Dexter; and Quang Nguyen, 19, of Ypsilani Township, to feed his heroin habit.
Colwell, the younger Schuh and Nguyen broke into nine homes and the elder Schuh served as a lookout on three of those occasions, according to Colwell’s testimony. The crew allegedly stole a wide range of items: foreign coins, two-dollar bills, equestrian trophies, jewelry, silver goblets, electronics, cash, a guitar and custom-made brass bullets.
The Schuhs have a trial scheduled in May, according to court records.
