BRYAN — A Michigan man was indicted Tuesday by a Williams County grand jury on two counts of murder, among other charges, related to the stabbing death last month of 23-year-old Bryan resident Dylan Bible.
Ryan Dangerfield, 38, Reading, Mich., was indicted on two counts of murder (one alleging he caused Bible’s death, the other alleging Bible’s death was the proximate result of felonious assault), both unclassified felonies; engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, a first-degree felony; two counts of felonious assault, both second-degree felonies; and carrying a concealed weapon, a fourth-degree felony.
Misdemeanor charges of aggravated assault and operating a motor vehicle without insurance — stemming from incidents in 2017 and 2018, respectively — were dropped last week in Hillsdale County’s Second District Court to free up Dangerfield for extradition to Williams County, where he is accused of stabbing Bible to death June 23 at the Colonial Manor Motel, 924 E. High St., Bryan.
Two counts of assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer, both felonies related to Dangerfield’s June 24 arrest at a residence in Reading, also were dropped in Michigan to facilitate Dangerfield’s extradition.
After the alleged assault, Bible was transported to Community Hospitals and Wellness Center, Bryan, where he was pronounced dead.
If convicted, Dangerfield faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
According to the Williams County Prosecutor’s Office, charges against others involved in the case may be presented later.
Dangerfield is set to appear in Williams County Common Pleas Court today at 9 a.m. Bond was set in Bryan Municipal Court on Friday at $2 million with no cash allowance.
