Prosecutors have brought a charge of murder against a Pittsfield Township man suspected of killing his wife Friday in their home on Hickory Pointe Boulevard.
Jean Pierre Trias, 44, was arraigned Sunday on a single count of open murder in the death of Katherine Porter, Public Safety Director Matthew Harshberger said.
Police discovered the 53 year-old's body after making a welfare check Friday at the couple's residence on the 4700 block of Hickory Pointe.
Harshberger declined Sunday to share additional details of the investigation but said more would be forthcoming Monday.
Police have not said how Porter was killed, but neighbors told AnnArbor.com Saturday that they heard what sounded like gunshots the night before Porter's body was discovered.
Neighbors also said people frequently came and went at the home.
