SUPERIOR TOWNSHIP (WWJ/AP) – An ex-con fresh out of prison for a robbery conviction has been charged in the stabbing murder of a 23-year-old Ann Arbor-area woman.
Police say the body of Shandar Turner was found Friday on the steps of her home in Superior Township where she lived with her twin 4-year-old boys.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Spokesman Derrick Jackson said Turner and the suspect, 35-year-old Stanley W. Harrison, had a previous romantic relationship.
State records show that Harrison went to prison in 2002 for robbery and committed a weapons-related crime while behind bars. Sheriff’s officials said he was released on Sept. 25 — three days before Turner’s slaying.
Harrison was arraigned Tuesday on an open charge of murder and is being held without bond.
It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
Annarbor.com reported Turner was the daughter of Donna Turner, who was recently convicted of fatally stabbing her boyfriend in Ypsilanti.
