In September the Saline Area Schools graduate pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Bredernitz, Brendan Heim, 17, and Samantha Grigg, 18, admitted they planned to rob Frolka, a known drug dealer. They drove him around the Lansing area to obtain money. Along I-69 in Bath Township, Heim began beating Frolka with brass knuckles in the backseat. Frolka then apparently jumped out of the vehicle on to the highway where he was left to die.
