Shiawassee County District Judge, Ward Clarkson, has ruled that 51 year old, Mark Latunski, accused in the brutal December 2019 killing of 25 year old Kevin Bacon, is mentally fit to stand trial.
Latunski has been in the care of a State psychiatric hospital for the past ten months.
After connecting via a dating app, authorities say Bacon went to Latunski's home. Responding to a request for a wellness check at Latunski's Tyrrell Road home, deputies discovered Bacon's body.

After fundraising for work to renovate the Sandula Clock Tower in downtown Durand, the newly updated attraction is not only ready to weather another quarter-century or so, new LED lighting installed by contractor, Eric Cleveland, makes it an even brighter spot in the city.
The color of the newly-installed lighting can be changed. The clock tower was lit red on Tuesday September 1st. On September 4th, the clock tower was lit green. There are more than 30 color options that will be changed for different events and seasons.
Earlier in the summer the Durand Rotary Club set out to raise funds for replacement of the asphalt roof with a metal roof, replacement of damaged wood sections, and repairs to the clock faces. All of these updates were completed with the more than $12,000 in donations that was collected.
The group is currently evaluating the sound system that plays music from the tower and is expecting the system may need to be replaced. Some other minor repairs are planned in the lobby of the tower as well.
The Durand Rotary Club appreciates the generous community response to the club’s efforts to maintain and preserve the Sandula Clock for the future.
Built by local resident John Sandula in the early 1950's, the clock design is based on the style of a Hungarian cathedral clock. The bells on the clock are nearly 150 years old, given to Sandula from the First United Methodist Church of Durand.
The clock was originally housed on top of the Simplicity Engineering machine shops. After it was removed from the factory and stored for several years, the Durand Rotary Club undertook a fund raising campaign to repair the clock and build the tower to house it. The beautiful white stone tower and restored clock were dedicated by the City of Durand and the Rotary Club in 1996.
