Harrison Township man charged in July death on Jefferson
CLINTON TOWNSHIP — An 84-year-old Harrison Township man has been arraigned in connection with the death of a pedestrian in July.

Richard Munro was arraigned in the 41B District Court in Clinton Township on Nov. 28 for the July 3 death of a 47-year-old Troy resident, Mehn A. Sinh, who was crossing Jefferson Avenue. It is alleged Munro hit Sinh while traveling northbound and under the influence of alcohol.

Munro is charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing death, a 15-year felony. Magistrate Ryan Zemke set Munro’s bond at $25,000 and suspended his license. Munro will be required to wear an alcohol-monitoring tether if released. He will next be in court on Tuesday, Dec. 5, for a probable cause hearing at 1:30 p.m. before District Court Judge Carrie Fuca.

“This individual’s reckless choice has forever altered the course of a family’s life,” said Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido in a press release. “Driving under the influence is not just against the law; it’s a profound injustice that shatters families. Our pursuit of justice will be unwavering as we seek accountability for the innocent life that was taken.”

Munro did not have a defense attorney listed in court documents.
