Deadly fight between cleaning crew at GM’s Orion Assembly: New details

A small debt may have led to the killing of a Pontiac man Thursday at General Motors’ Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told the Free Press. 

Gregory Lanier Robertson, 49, died of multiple blunt force injuries, the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s office said late Thursday. 

In an interview Friday, Bouchard declined to give specifics but said no weapons were brought into the plant. Instead, something “from the environment” was used as a weapon, he said. “He was brutally, brutally killed,” Bouchard said.

Robertson worked as a cleaner at the plant for seven months, employed as a temporary worker “hired by another third party,” GM plant spokesman Tom Wickham told the Free Press.

Authorities charged a 48-year-old man with open murder Friday, according to a news release from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department. The suspect, who faces life in prison if convicted, is scheduled to be arraigned Saturday.
