CMU professor Lee's preliminary exam adjourned one week

Robert Dale Lee, the Central Michigan University professor who has been charged with allegedly shooting at vacuum cleaner salesmen, had his preliminary exam put on hold this morning until next week.

Lee's attorney, Jeffrey D. Lynch, will meet with Isabella County Court Prosecutor Risa Scully at 8:15 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.

It is unclear whether Lee will enter a plea at that time.

Lynch denied requests to be interviewed by Central Michigan Life.

Students, faculty and alumni have taken to social media and newspaper comment sections to share their opinions on news of Lee’s actions.

Phone calls made by CM Life to Lee’s home seeking comment were not immediately returned.

A note was left outside one of Lee’s classrooms to notify students that their classes have been cancelled on June 6. A portion of the note said the final for the class has been waived.

Lee's future with the university also remains uncertain.
