Man faces life in prison after robbery in Meijer parking lot

A 30-year-old man is convicted of armed robbery and unlawful imprisonment.

The Genesee County Prosecutor says back on August 17 of last year, Dewayane Kerperien followed a vehicle into the parking lot of the Meijer store on Center Road in Burton.

When the driver came out of her car, Kerperien pulled a gun out and forced her back inside and robbed her.

Kerperien has three prior felonies and faces up to life in prison when he is expected to be sentenced April 22.
