Michigan man faces hearing in train stabbings
NILES, Mich. (AP) -- A 44-year-old man faces a hearing on charges that he stabbed three fellow Amtrak train passengers and a conductor in southwestern Michigan.
Michael Williams of Saginaw is to appear Monday in court on attempted murder charges.
Police used a Taser to subdue Williams Friday night as the train was stopped at a depot in Niles, about 10 miles north of South Bend, Indiana. He's being held in the Berrien County Jail on a $1 million bond.
The four victims were in stable condition Sunday. Niles Police Chief Jim Millin has said Williams didn't have a relationship with any of the victims.
Millin said detectives spoke with Williams over the weekend, but the chief declined to discuss a motive behind the attack.
The train was headed to Port Huron from Chicago.
