July 29 (Reuters) - Six Michigan state employees were charged on Friday in connection with dangerous lead levels in the city of Flint's drinking water, the Detroit Free Press reported.
The criminal charges were filed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette against three employees apiece from the state's health and environmental departments, the newspaper said.
The accusations mark the second round of charges related to the investigation into the Flint water crisis. Schuette was scheduled to hold a news conference on Friday about the charges.
