Man Charged With Murder After Relative Found Naked, Dead In Bathtub

Posted: Updated:
HOWELL, Mich. (WLNS) --  Livingston County officials say a 25-year-old man who admitted to choking his sister-in-law to death was charged with first degree murder on Friday.

Prosecutor William Vailliencourt said Nicholas Foerster reported 23-year-old Rachelle Wood's death on Monday. Officials say her dead body was found naked in her bathtub at the Whitmore Lake Apartments in Green Oak a Township. He was later charged with Wood's murder. It appeared she had been dead for awhile, authorities said.

Vailliencourt would not give further details on a motive, but he did say the suspect does not appear to have a criminal history. Vailliencourt said Foerster admitted to choking Wood for about seven minutes.

Foerster will appear in court early next week.
