Man charged in slaying of Hillsdale County woman

ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) - A 42-year-old Jackson man is charged in the slaying of a 63-year-old woman whose body was found at a southeastern Michigan boat launch.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports that Steven Storm was arraigned via video Friday at the Lenawee County Jail on an open murder charge. A preliminary examination is set for Dec. 3.

Storm was arrested Wednesday after authorities obtained Sandra Johnson's bank records. Johnson's body was found Nov. 17 at the launch on Crispell Lake in Jackson County's Liberty Township.

Additional details of the slaying have not been released.

Lenawee County Prosecutor Burke Castleberry said Storm and Johnson knew one another. Castleberry says their connection was not romantic.

The Associated Press left a message Friday afternoon seeking comment from Storm's court-appointed attorney, John Glaser.
