The Lansing Township Police Department positively identified the woman fatally stabbed earlier this week. Police said the 55 year-old’s name is Janice Gwen Dugger.
A 42 year-old man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death, but his name has not been released by police.
Police presented information to the Ingham County Prosecutors Office and they have authorized charges be sought for open murder.
Officers were called to a home in the 200 block of Homer Street just after midnight on Wednesday. When they arrived, they found Dugger with a stab wound to the neck.
The Michigan State Police Crime Scene team assisted with the investigation. If you have any information you are asked to contact the Lansing Township Police Department at 517-485-1700.
