HUDSONVILLE, Mich. — Richard Usher Jr., 18, faced judge Kenneth Post for his preliminary examination on Wednesday.

Usher and his attorney, Phillip Sielski, were in and out of the 58th district courtroom within a minute.

The 18 year old is now headed to circuit court on charges of manslaughter and felony firearms.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department said Usher was involved in a deadly game of Russian roulette on March 8th. That game killed 16 year old Brandon Kuiper.

The sheriff’s department said Usher pulled the trigger.

Usher is scheduled to be arraigned in circuit court on April 1st.
