LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation is now before the Michigan House to rename part of M-116 from the Lincoln River to the Big Sable River as the Paul Butterfield Memorial Highway.

Eric Knysz was convicted Tuesday evening of four charges in the shooting death of Trooper Butterfield.  He will be sentenced to life in prison without parole in April.

The highway memorial bill was passed by a House committee Wednesday and is expected to get quick approval from both the House and Senate.
