HILLSDALE, Mich. — Michigan charges have been dropped against a man wanted in connection with a June stabbing death in Bryan.
According to Hillsdale County Prosecutor Neal Brady, all charges against Ryan Dangerfield, 38, whose last known address was Reading, Mich., were dropped during a preliminary hearing on Wednesday in Hillsdale County’s Second District Court.
Those charges were aggravated assault and operating a motor vehicle without insurance, both misdemeanors. The charges stem from incidents in 2017 and 2018, respectively. He also was charged with two counts of assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer, both felonies. Those two charges were connected to his arrest on June 24 at a residence in Reading, where he was wanted on a warrant from Bryan Municipal Court.
This will allow Dangerfield to be extradited to Williams County on charges of voluntary manslaughter and being a fugitive from justice. He has been charged with the June 23 stabbing death of Dylan Bible, 23, at Colonial Manor Motel, 924 E. High St. After allegedly being assaulted, Bible was transported to Community Hospitals and Wellness Center, Bryan, where he was pronounced dead.
