Ex-MSU basketball star Keith Appling to be charged with 1st Degree Murder

Former Michigan State Spartans basketball star Keith Appling will be charged with first degree murder stemming from the shooting death of 66 year Clyde Edmonds in Detroit last month. Additionally, he’s been charged with one count of felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of felony firearm.

A formal date for charges to officially be levied through a court arraignment is being arranged.

According to authorities, Appling had gotten into an argument with Edwards, resulting in the former shooting the victim and fleeing the scene on May 22. He would soon be apprehended two days later in Chelsea.

Appling had also spent 18 months on probation stemming from drug charges in 2020, and had also previously been sentenced to a year in jail for carrying concealed weapons and resisting arrest.
