Mark Latunski, a 50 year old Morrice resident, charged in connection with the death of 25 year old Swartz Creek resident, Kevin Bacon, recently deemed incompetent to stand trial on the charges lodged against him, has been ordered to undergo treatment at a facility recommended by the Center for Forensic Psychiatry. It happened at a Thursday morning hearing in Corunna.

Judge Ward L. Clarkson's order appoints responsibility for supervision of Latunski's treatment to the State Department of Mental Health, and stipulates Latunski be placed at the facility recommended by the Center for Forensic Psychiatry.

"There is substantial probability that the defendent, if provided a course of treatment, will attain competence to stand trial," the order says, stating further "the defendent shall undergo treatment to render the defendent competent to stand trial."

Latunski's Morrice home, where the body of Kevin Bacon was found in December, was sold at auction for $101,000 earlier this week.

NEW EPISODE
Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
