A Fenton man charged in a fatal drunk driving crash appeared in court this morning.

Mathew Jordan Carrier stepped foot into the 53rd District Court this morning for a probable cause conference that was adjourned within minutes and rescheduled for August 23rd at 8:30am. Rolland Sizemore, who is Carriers defense attorney, said the date has been pushed back about a month due to his busy trial schedule. This morning was Sizemore’s first time in court on the case since he was appointed following Carrier’s arraignment July 12th.

The 21-year-old Fenton man is charged with 19 counts, including five counts each of second degree murder and operating while intoxicated causing death. They were filed after a crash at M-59 and Argentine Road in Oceola Township on May 9th, that killed 5 people and seriously injured two others. Carrier remains jailed without bond. (AS/JK)
