MASON, Mich. (AP) - A judge in Mason has ordered a man to stand trial for the death of an Ingham County sheriff’s deputy who crashed while chasing his SUV.

The judge on Tuesday ruled that 34-year-old John Kelsey of Stockbridge will be tried on charges of fleeing or eluding police causing death and driving on a suspended license causing death.

Authorities say an officer in an unmarked sheriff’s car began chasing the SUV on Dec. 7 after Kelsey failed to stop.

They say Deputy Grant Whitaker took over as the lead pursuer in his marked vehicle when he lost control and crashed about 2 a.m. near Stockbridge, about 40 miles southeast of Lansing.
