A Genesee County courtroom will see another hearing in the Flint water crisis later today.  

The probable cause hearing will look at issues related to a variety of charges against former emergency managers Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose and former city employees Daugherty Johnson and Howard Croft.

The charges include false pretenses, conspiracy to commit false pretenses, willful neglect of duty and misconduct in office.

Last week, prosecutors filed involuntary manslaughter charges against Earley and Croft.   The charges are related to a Legionnaires' disease outbreak that took place during Flint’s switch to the Flint River as the city’s tap water source.
