PAW PAW, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has been charged with stabbing a woman to death near Paw Paw on Sunday.
Logan Amstutz, 22, was arraigned Monday on one count of open murder, according to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.
He is accused of stabbing and killing 57-year-old Janet Amstutz at the home they shared the 54000 block of Ridgeview Circle in Antwerp Township.
Authorities went to the house Sunday morning after the suspect called 911 about the stabbing, saying the victim appeared to be dead. The suspect met officers in the front yard and was arrested without incident, authorities said.
The stabbing is believed to have stemmed from an altercation in the house, the sheriff’s office said.
The Associated Press is reporting that Janet Amstutz was Logan Amstutz’s aunt.
Logan Amstutz was denied bond Monday. He is expected back in court for a pre-exam conference on Dec. 4.
