DETROIT (AP) – A Detroit man has been charged in the shooting death of his former girlfriend while her 4-year-old daughter was in the same room.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 37-year-old Earl Maxwell was arraigned Thursday on first-degree murder and gun charges.
Prosecutors say 42-year-old Latrese Morris-Dorsey was slain Sunday night in her home on Detroit’s northwest side. Morris-Dorsey’s 14-year-old son also was in the house at the time of her shooting.
On Tuesday, Maxwell turned himself in to police.
A probable cause conference is scheduled for July 5. A preliminary examination will be held July 12.
