After a nearly year-long investigation, three suspects have been arrested and jailed for the brutal assault of a Glennie man they planned to rob.

On January 6, 2019, at approximately 11:20 p.m., deputies with the Alcona County Sheriff’s Office were sent to a residence in Glennie after receiving a call from a woman who said her husband was struck in the head by an unknown assailant outside their home.

Kenneth McMullen was attacked with a metal pipe and suffered extensive head injuries and a broken arm. He was initially taken to the hospital in Tawas and later transferred to a downstate facility.

Investigators with the sheriff’s office recently tied three suspects to the crime – 31 year-old Michael John Keeting, 27 year-old Quinton Noell McMurren, and 27 year-old Kayley M. Duel. Police said that Keeting formerly worked for McMullen’s family owned fencing company, and that the three suspects conspired to drive to Glennie to rob him. When McMullen resisted he was attacked with the metal pipe.

All three suspects are from Saginaw and have been charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit a breaking and entering, and attempted breaking and entering.

Keeting and McMurren are being held on a $1 million bond each. Duel was released on a $15,000 bond.
