Warren — Three days after a wife was arraigned on charges of stabbing her husband, she was charged in his death, police said Tuesday. 

Shakina Thomas-Alexander, 34, was arraigned in 37th District Court on Tuesday on a charge of murder, said Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer in a statement.


A judge ordered her held at the Macomb County Jail on a $500,000 bond and scheduled her next court date for Jan. 25, he said.

If convicted, she faces up to life in prison.

Dwyer said police officers were called at about 1:45 a.m. Saturday to a home in the 20000 block of Audrey near Eight Mile and Mound for a report of a stabbing.

They found the victim, Daetorian Thomas-Alexander, 28, stabbed in the back. The stabbing happened after an argument, the commissioner said.

Dwyer said the victim died at a hospital Tuesday.

He said Shakina Thomas-Alexander was arraigned Saturday on a charge of assault with intent to commit murder in the case involving her husband.
