A 37-year-old Columbiaville man was arraigned Monday on charges regarding the mid-August homicide of Lisa Fabbri, a 38-year-old Macomb Township woman, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office announced.

Jeremiah James Boshell faces charges of first-degree murder; two counts of felony firearm; and one count of intentionally causing a miscarriage. He was ordered to be held without bond Monday morning at an arraignment in 42-2 District Court in New Baltimore.

Fabbri’s body was found in a vehicle parked behind a home on the 60000 block of Frost in Lenox Township. Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home on Aug. 16, at about 8:15 a.m., to find Fabbri dead in the Chrysler PT Cruiser parked there. She was 38. Her death had been called in by the homeowner.

Immediately, investigators named Boshell was a “person of interest,” and he was arrested the next day in Lapeer County.

That arrest was not made without incident.

As a release put out at the time described it: “Macomb Sheriff plain-clothes investigators were following up on tips on the whereabouts of Boshell when they located him near the Pioneer Transmission Shop on Lake Nepessing Road. Sheriff detectives (driving unmarked vehicles) began to follow Boshell and radioed for assistance from marked police vehicles. Boshell, aware of the detectives, fired a shot at the detectives and at a pedestrian in the area. No one was struck by the gunfire.”

State police and the sheriff’s office in Lapeer followed the Ford pickup the man had been driving, until it crashed on eastbound Interstate 69 and was arrested.

Boshell is next due in court on Jan. 4 at 9 a.m.
