MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI (WKZO) -- A young Montcalm County man who is charged with killing his mom by grabbing the steering wheel and swerving their Dodge Durango into an oncoming Semi has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric exam in Kalamazoo. 

Two backseat passengers told police he reached over and suddenly jerked the wheel to the left, sending the car over the centerline.

20-year-old Lorenzo Martinez and the two in the back seat were injured.

Muskegon Co. Prosecutor B.J. Hilson says it will delay the prosecution a few months.  

Martinez has a history of mental problems, and had just been released from the hospital a few weeks before the fatal crash occurred last Friday.   He has been charged with manslaughter.
