Jeffrey Howell, from Ann Arbor, is facing a charge of armed robbery, two counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and attempted armed robbery. He’ll be in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, records show.
Howell and Anthony Demario Hugan, who were both 18 when charged, are accused of robbing a 38-year-old Ypsilanti man at gunpoint after placing an order with Bell’s Pizza on April 12. Five days later, the two men allegedly called in an order to the Happy Wok and attempted to rob Soon Gin, a delivery driver.
Gin testified in court during Hugan’s preliminary exam that he drove away from the area before the robbery could happen because he felt something was wrong when he got to the home in the 2000 block of Liberty Heights.
Hugan is scheduled to be in court for a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 9 in front of Swartz.
Both men face a maximum punishment of life in prison, if convicted.
