About 7 p.m. Oct. 26, a 33-year-old man was found lying on the grass on the 700 block of Covington, with a stab wound, police said. That's near Palmer Park, north of McNichols and west of Woodward.

Medics transported the victim to the hospital, but he died from his injuries.

At the time, police described the suspect as "unknown."

As of Friday morning, Dorchy has not posted bond and remains at Wayne County Jail. He has petitioned for a court-appointed attorney.

Dorchy is due for a probable cause conference Thursday Nov. 19 and a preliminary examination on Nov. 24, both before Judge Ronald Giles.

Dorchy's criminal history dates to 1983, when he was 18 and sentenced for felony firearm and armed robbery after taking a plea deal in Oakland County.

Most recently, he served three years of a 20-month to 10-year sentence for domestic violence third offense, the result of a 2014 plea deal in Kent County.

He was discharged from prison three years ago, in December 2017.
