Dion Patterson

Dion Marquis Patterson, 17, was charged in the killing of Mathew Allen Green, 33, of Westland. Patterson was charged with felony murder, second-degree murder, felonious assault and home invasion. Green, his girlfriend and two other people returned home from a night out about 2:15 a.m. They were a little loud walking up the sidewalk. The neighbor, Dion's mother, had a verbal altercation with them. After his mother told him about the words that were exchanged, Patterson took a kitchen knife and went to the neighboring home, entering through an unlocked side door. Suffering three stab wounds, Green died of his injuries.
