Trial rescheduled in couple killings, dismemberment

Sunday Times Newspapers

ALLEN PARK – A trial has been set for May for a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her fiance after briefly living with the couple at their Ann Street house.

Roger Bowling was scheduled for trial Monday on charges of first degree murder, dismemberment, tampering with evidence and felony firearm in the deaths of Danielle Greenway, 32, and Chris Hall, 42.

Jury selection is scheduled now for May 14 before Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Ulysses Boykin.

The dismembered bodies of Hall and Greenway were found in the Detroit River July 17.

Bowling had dated Greenway in high school and a former roommate testified during his preliminary examination that he and Bowling often talked about how they woud “get rid” of the women in their lives, with Bowling often threatening during those talks to “cut up” Greenway.

In an Allen Park Police Department interview with Bowling two days after the bodies were found, he said he was on a bike ride the weekend of the murders and did not know the couple was missing.

Bowling’s attorney, Mark. L Brown, pointed to a large-scale marijuana growing facility allegedly operated by the couple as a possible motive for murder by someone other than Bowling.
