Prosecutor: Murder Case Far From Over

lloyd laura johnsondj1 e1285708835314 Prosecutor: Murder Case Far From OverThere’s been yet another development in the strange case involving the death of a Farmington Hills man. While the death of Lloyd Johnson has been termed “accidental,” it appears the case is far from being over.

Johnson, was pronounced dead at Botsford Hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 22. His wife, Laura, was charged with murder in the case.

A spokesperson for Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said they plan to present further revelations in the case during a pre-exam conference hearing Wednesday, Sept. 29, in Farmington Hills district court.

John Slevin, wouldn’t go into what those new facts will be, but did say “all options” are possible when it comes any further charges.

Slevin said he expects several motions will be filed.

Earlier Tuesday, Oakland County Medical Examiner ruled that Johnson’s death was an accident caused by trauma from an old boating accident along with other factors including morbid obesity and diabetes.

Ljubisa Dragovic said 47-year old Johnson had an open wound on his lower back, the result of an oar piercing him there. He said Johnson weighed 413 pounds and had other health problems, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Dragovic said the autopsy “vindicated” Laura Johnson, who was released from the Oakland County Jail late Monday — hours after the funeral for her husband.
