The first suspect in the Covington armed robbery case from August appeared on Thursday morning in Baraga County Circuit Court.
Donavan Lee Waupoose is facing charges of armed robbery, extortion, impersonating an officer, and unlawful imprisonment. The 21-year-old man pled not guilty on all seven counts in September. His trial date has been set for the end of February.
The prosecution also mentioned a possible joining of cases, Waupoose's with the second suspect, Bernard Fish. That could happen in the coming weeks.
