CU System briefs (01/11/2012)
  • DEARBORN, Mich. (1/12/12)--A man about to go on trial for the 2001 fatal shooting of an armored-truck guard outside Dearborn (Mich.) FCU (now DFCU Financial CU) pleaded guilty Tuesday.  Norman Duncan, 43, entered the plea to the murder charge just before selection of the jury was to begin (Associated Press via MLive.com Jan. 11).  Duncan was not accused of pulling the trigger. Two other men, Kevin Watson, 41, and Timothy O'Reilly, 37, already have been convicted in the shooting death of Norman Anthony Stephens, 30, during the robbery while Stephens was loading an ATM outside the credit union.  O'Reilly escaped receiving a rare death sentence after the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict on the death sentence. Six men were involved in the $204,000 heist (News Now Nov. 28 and Feb. 10) …
