Orion Township man accused of strangling mother to death, stabbing uncle

ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — An 29-year-old Orion Township man was arrested after allegedly strangling his mother to death and stabbing his uncle.

Deputies responded to a home in the 4500 block of Rohr Road on the report of a stabbing. Deputies located the suspect, who had a laceration to the neck and a severe laceration to his hand, walking southbound on Rohr Road. Police say he was incoherent and sobbing.

Officials say the suspect had physically attacked his mother, a 59-year-old Orion Township woman. The suspect’s uncle heard the call for help from his sister and went to see what was occurring, where he saw his nephew allegedly strangling his mother. He then pulled the suspect from his sister.

The suspect reportedly retrieved a knife from the kitchen and returned to confront his uncle – the two continued to fight and the uncle was stabbed in the shoulder.

Deputies entered the residence and found the woman lying face down in the living room, unconscious and bleeding profusely. She was taken to the hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

The suspect was taken into custody. Detectives are continuing to investigate
