MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. (July 7, 2014) — The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office announced Monday that open murder charges were issued related to the June 26 killing of Jake Rameau.

Robert Earl Gee, 30, is accused in Rameau’s murder.  Muskegon County online jail records show he was taken into custody July 4 on a concealed weapon violation.

Rameau’s motorcycle crashed around 2 a.m. June 26 in the 2400 block of Peck Street in Muskegon Heights.  Investigators later revealed that he had been shot, which caused the crash.

Dashawn Andrew Boylan, 25, also faces charges connected to this incident.  He is accused of stealing the car that Rameau was chasing the night of his death, the prosecutor’s office said.

The investigation is ongoing and more charges may follow.

“The investigation has revealed that the victim in this case died a hero and we extend our sincere condolences and prayers to his family and loved ones,” Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat said in a written statement.
