MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. — A Muskegon County attorney is facing a charge connected to a domestic violence incident that allegedly took place Thursday.

Muskegon County Prosecutor DJ Hilson says one charge has been authorized against Attorney Jason Kolkema based on evidence received in the case so far.

He's due back in court August 31 for his arraignment.

Kolkema is a judicial candidate opposing Jenny McNeill in the midterm election.
