HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - An ex-convict who spent 20 years in prison for second-degree murder has been charged in the fatal shooting of an Army veteran at a Detroit-area bus stop.

Malcolm Benson is accused of robbing and killing 59-year-old Stanley Carter, who was waiting for a bus in Highland Park. He was returned to jail Friday without bond. An attorney will be assigned.

The 50-year-old Benson is charged with first-degree murder and other crimes. He was released from prison in January.

Relatives told The Detroit News (https://bit.ly/1LE22yZ ) that Carter was a former Army Ranger and had a black belt in karate. A brother, Timothy Carter, wants to put a plaque at the bus stop to remember him.

He says he wants people to say, “Stanley was a good guy.”
