A federal grand jury in Louisville, Kentucky, returned an indictment Wednesday charging a Louisville man with carjacking resulting in death.
According to court documents, on March 1, 2021, Michael J. Dewitt, 28, carjacked a vehicle in Simpsonville, Kentucky, and, during flight, killed 17-year-old M.T. in a vehicle collision on Dixie Highway in Louisville.
Dewitt is charged with carjacking resulting in death. The defendant is currently detained on state charges. If convicted of federal charges, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. There is no parole in the federal system.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael A. Bennett of the Western District of Kentucky and FBI Special Agent in Charge Jodi Cohen of the FBI’s Louisville Field Office made the announcement.
The FBI, Louisville Metropolitan Police Department, and Shelby County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the case.
