MARQUETTE — Sigurd John Utych, 19, of Marquette has been arraigned upon new charges in the 96th District Court.

The new charges include: two additional counts of breaking and entering with intent, a felony; malicious destruction of property, $200 – $1000, a misdemeanor; larceny, $1,000 to $20,000, a felony; and four counts of home invasion, 2nd degree, a felony.
