LENOX TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – A Lapeer County man has been charged in the fatal shooting of his girlfriend over the summer in Northern Macomb County.
Jeremiah James Boshell, was arraigned in 42-2 District Court Monday on one count of first degree premeditated murder, one count of assault on a pregnant individual intentionally causing miscarriage (a life felony), and two counts of felony firearm.
Boshell, 37, was arrested back in August after police say he fired on officers as he fled before finally crashing. He was a suspect in the murder of his girlfriend, 38-year-old Lisa Fabbri, after her body was found in her PT Cruiser parked in a field behind a home in Lenox Township.
Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said Boshell had planned to go on a killing spree after murdering Fabbri, the mother of his teenage son, with a single bullet to the head.
Wickersham said investigators, acting on a tip, tracked Boshell down to a transmission shop in Lapeer where he allegedly planned to killed two more people. When he found his intended victims weren’t there, but instead encountered undercover detectives, he jumped into his Ford pickup and fired shots at an unmarked police vehicle
Michigan State Police joined the pursuit, chasing Boshell at high speeds. He allegedly fired shots at a pedestrian in Lapeer County before crashed near Wilder Road where he was arrested.
Boshell was reportedly clad in a tactical vest and toting extra ammunition when he was taken into custody.
Wickerham said Boshell’s vehicle was full of firearms — including some that were registered to the victim. One was described as an AR-15, but investigators believe he killed Fabbri with a 9 mm handgun.
Boshell, a Columbiaville resident, is behind held without bond at the Macomb County Jail. His next court appearance is set for Wednesday, Jan. 4.
