A Detroit man has been charged with killing a woman and her brother in 2011 after they were shot while driving their Jeep in suburban Michigan.
The Detroit News reported the woman was shot in the head and the victim in the chest and the woman and brother were killed in a fiery crash on Highway 4.
Authorities said the man was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee with tinted windows when they were pulled over on Highway 16 on March 11, 2011, by a Detroit police officer and another officer.
Investigators said the Jeep driver told police he was following traffic and was following a stop sign.
He then told police the Jeep hit a curb and the driver was hit and the Jeep was flipped.
Witnesses told police they saw the Jeep drive away and that the driver then got out and shot himself in the face.
Police said the victim’s sister and boyfriend were killed, but a cause of death has not been determined.
An attorney for the man’s father, who lives in Ohio, said the suspect was not at the scene of the crash.
In an online statement, the victim was identified as Kaitlin M. Jackson.
She was 30 years old and the victims were 33 and 29 years old.
She was a mother of two young children and worked as a registered nurse, authorities said.
“She was taken from her life in the most horrible way possible and is deeply saddened,” said attorney John Fauci.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
