ST. JOHNS, Mich. (AP) - Four people have been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a 62-year-old Clinton County man, tripped up by a $4 purchase of junk food with the victim’s credit card.

Jeff Kebler was found dead inside his Eagle Township home on Aug. 6, about 15 miles northwest of Lansing. The Lansing State Journal (https://on.freep.com/1EtjPlt ) says two suspects turned themselves in after the sheriff’s office distributed photos from a store in Ypsilanti.

Undersheriff Larry Jerue says the video shows Mitchell Ballinger and Manuel Martinez buying cookies and soda. Two other suspects, Alexis Pena and Dominque Harris, were in custody in an unrelated case.

The four appeared in court and were returned to jail. It wasn’t known if they had lawyers yet.

The victim’s brother, James Kebler, says investigators did a “great job.”
