A Michigan State Police trooper who spent a week in jail for hosting an underage drinking party at his Manistee County home has died in a car crash.
State police say 48-year-old Robert Marble died Friday in a two-car accident that also claimed the life of his 57-year-old mother-in-law Lucinda Gillenwater.
Radio station WKLA in Ludington says Marble was off-duty at the time of the crash.
Two 16-year-old occupants in the other car received minor injuries after their vehicle slammed into Marble's car at an intersection. Investigators say snow covered roads appear to be a factor.
Marble was sentenced in November after pleading guilty to two counts of attempting to let minors consume alcohol. He was a 20-year veteran of the state police.
