Charges have been filed in a motorcycle fatality that happened in Ishpeming almost a month ago.
47-year-old Rodney Stewart, Jr. of Ishpeming has been charged in 96th District Court with a moving violation causing death.
That offense is a one-year misdemeanor.
On July 6th, Stewart pulled out from the Holiday gas station on US-41 into the path of a motorcycle.
36-year-old James Maatta of Ely Township was riding the eastbound bike.
He died from his injuries.
Stewart stood mute on the charges, so a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
He has an August 16th pretrial conference.
