LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A man charged with intentionally striking and killing a Michigan firefighter with his pickup truck spent at least 18 days in mental health hospitals in the past three years.

The Lansing State Journal (https://on.lsj.com/1FYU3pJ ) reports that Ingham County’s Probate Court released some details Monday about Grant Taylor. His mother had sought court orders to involuntarily put him in hospitals because of mental illness.

The 22-year-old Taylor is charged with murder and other crimes in the death of firefighter Dennis Rodeman on Sept. 9.

Rodeman was struck while in a street collecting donations for charity. Police say Taylor was upset about the impact on traffic.

A judge last week approved requests to have Taylor’s mental health evaluated.
