Detroit — A 27-year-old woman, Kiantay Lovett-Mccall, faces a charge of first-degree murder in Detroit's first homicide of the year.

Kiantay Lovett-Mccall was charged by Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy with first-degree premeditated murder and felony firearm. 

Police arrived on the 18000 block of Griggs just 75 minutes into the new year, at about 1:15 a.m., on a report of a domestic assault, said Latrice Crawford, a spokeswoman for Detroit Police Department.

Officers found a 31-year-old man, Willie Mills, slain. He had been shot multiple times. The woman had been assaulted.

Police believe the two argued and the woman then got a gun and fired.
