Michigan man charged with murder of his mother’s ex-boyfriend

A man accused of killing his mother-in-law and her boyfriend has been charged with second-degree murder, police said.

Amber McBride, 34, was arraigned Friday in the Eastern Michigan Municipal Court in Grand Rapids, the city’s court website said.

The judge set her bail at $1 million and set a Nov. 20 preliminary hearing for McBride.

According to police, McBride was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound Monday at her home in Lansing, Mich.

Her boyfriend was also in the house, but McBride and the man were not injured, police spokeswoman Laura Stokes said.

McBride’s body was taken to the state’s medical examiner’s office for an autopsy, which could take days, Stokes told The Associated Press.

McBride and her ex-husband, Scott, 30, were divorced in March.

The couple had been together for about a year.

McBrides father, Robert McBride Sr., was in court Friday for her arraignment.

He declined to comment.

Scott McBride did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

McBridge is being held on $1.8 million bond, according to the Lansing State Journal.

She is being arraigned in the Kent County District Court in Kent County, Michigan.
