On September 21, 2016 at 1:15 a.m., the Dearborn Heights Police received a 911 call that led them to a home in the 4400 block of Hipp in Dearborn Heights. Dearborn Heights police officers arrested Gregory Vincente Green, 49 (DOB: 12/10/66), of Dearborn Heights, in the driveway of his home, in connection with the homicides of his two children and his two stepchildren. After the arrest, the police went into the home and discovered Green's 39-year-old wife in the basement of the home, bound with duct tape and zip ties. It is alleged that Green bound his wife, cut her face with a box cutter and shot her foot and then shot the two older children in front of her. Mrs. Green was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Green's step-children, Chadney Allen, 19, and Kara Allen, 17, were discovered by police in the basement of the home with multiple gunshot wounds. They were both pronounced dead at the scene. In the garage of the home, duct tape was observed on the muffler of a car and a plastic tube was attached to the car. The police discovered Koi Green, 5, and Kaliegh Green, 4, in the upper portion of the home. It is alleged that Green poisoned the two younger children with carbon monoxide. The children were taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Green with four counts of First Degree Murder, one count of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm, one count of Torture, one count of Unlawful Imprisonment, one count of Felonious Assault, Felon in Possession and one count of Felony Firearm. Green was arraigned and remanded to jail today in 20th District Court in Dearborn Heights. The probable cause hearing is scheduled for October 5, 2016 and the preliminary examination on October 12, 2016, both hearings are at 9:00 a.m.
Prosecutor Worthy said," There is nothing that better illustrates the silence of violence than this case. A confluence of events led to the deaths of four beautiful children. The alleged evidence in this case will show an appalling level of domestic violence that was cataclysmic. We must push the issue of domestic violence back to the forefront and be constantly educated about it."
