AP man arraigned in death of couple

Sunday Times Newspaper

ALLEN PARK – An Allen Park man awaits a preliminary examination of the evidence against him relating to the death and dismemberment of an Allen Park couple.

Roger K. Bowling, 39, was arraigned Monday in 24th District Court before Judge John Courtright on charges of first degree murder, mutilation of a body, and felony firearm in the deaths of Chris Hall, 42, and Danielle Greenway, 32, July 16.

Bowling had been a houseguest of the couple, who lived in the 14600 block of Anne, according to a Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office press release. Their torsos were found in the Detroit River in Detroit about 6 a.m. July 17.
Bowling allegedly shot and dismembered the couple in their house before disposing of them in the river.

Bowling had dated Greenway several years ago, according to published reports.

Bowling was arrested July 19 after a joint investigation by the Allen Park and Detroit Police departments.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kim Worthy said the sensational nature of the case should not detract from the severity of the crime.

“It is not often that torsos are found floating in Wayne County, so I can understand the interest,” Worthy said. “However, we must remember this couple lost their lives in the worst possible way.”

His preliminary examination is scheduled for Aug. 6.
