(PORT HURON) -- The 52-year-old man charged with open murder in the slaying of a 26-year-old Port Huron man will face a jury trial. Port Huron resident Michael Poole was bound over to Circuit Court Tuesday during his preliminary exam. Poole is accused of killing David Long, whose throat was slit as they gathered around a bonfire in the 600 block of Stanton Street earlier this month. Police say the men were part of a small group at the bonfire and that the two had been arguing throughout the day. Witnesses said Poole fled after Long was attacked. He was arrested not long after the incident, at his home in the 1100 block of 10th Street. Poole remains jailed in St. Clair County. His next court date has not been scheduled.
